Island Harvest Receives $25,000 from Robin Hood Foundation

Mineola-based non-profit Island Harvest recently received an additional $25,000 grant from the  Robin Hood Foundation to assist Long Island families still struggling in the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.

Proceeds from the grant were used to purchase $25 gifts cards from Stop & Shop supermarkets, which in turn were distributed to families impacted by the storm. 

Earlier this month Island Harvest received $200,000 from the Robin Hood Foundation which helped fund meals for first responders and supplemental food, personal care items and cleaning supplies for those affected by late October’s super storm. 

“We are exceptionally grateful to the Robin Hood Foundation and all its supporters for stepping up and offering much needed aid to thousands of people on Long Island and throughout the tri-state area whose lives were upended by the fury of hurricane Sandy,” Island Harvest president and CEO Randi Shubin Dresner said in a statement.
