Lionheart Foundation now accepting donations to aid West Islip
its inception in response to the 9/11 tragedies, the Lionheart
Foundation has been a financial conduit to ease the burden of West Islip
families suffering through tragedies such as loss of a loved one, loss
of income, home fires and unforeseen accidents. In the aftermath of
Hurricane Sandy, Lionheart will continue to offer financial relief for
the victims of the storm. The Lionheart Foundation is administered by
Mr. Mullins, Principal of Bayview Elementary School, and is run under
the not-for-profit umbrella of the West Islip Summit Coalition. Requests
for funds come from a variety of sources; a building principal or social
worker may know of a family in need; a neighbor or friend may contact
the Lionheart committee members, etc. The Foundation will consider all
requests based on the severity of need, and respond immediately.
If you are contemplating a financial donation please consider the
Lionheart Foundation. Checks should be made out to the West Islip Summit
Coalition with Lionheart written in the memo line. Every donation counts no matter how large or small.
