Beyond volunteerism, how can you get involved in helping your community?Explore the answers to each of these questions.In the 2012-2013 school year, after site visits and much deliberation, we were proud of award $500 to the Long Island Crisis Center, and $500 to the Parent-Child Home Program.We know how much $1000 can go to help those in our community in need!
