As we navigate these uncertain times and the challenges that come along with the coronavirus pandemic, we’re launching Together Long Island; an online community connecting Long Islanders who can help with Long Islanders who need help.
The upheaval to our daily lives will mean some of our neighbors will need a helping hand, and others will be ready to step up and help out.
If you want to help someone, or you need help yourself, click one of the buttons below.
In 250 characters or less, explain what you are looking for OR what you can provide for your fellow Long Islander. Once approved your message will be added to our online community board.
(If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911.)
We’re encouraging these acts of kindness as a small reminder of our connection to each other — even as we stay away from public spaces, work from home, or deal with illness, in the days and weeks to come.
