Pride for Youth is a service and an advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) young people through age 30. They also run an Adult Sexual Health Program which serves LGBTQ individuals through age 45. Their mission is to enhance the health and wellness of the LGBTQ community through education, supportive services and personal development in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens Counties. Toni chose to use their donations this month to support all the beautiful lives touched by PFY and hope the dollar donation can continue to support all that they do.
When quarantine began, Team Toni jumped on making masks as soon as we could. Our goal was to raise enough money in donations to help ease the daily struggles of the frontline nurses and to supply others with proper face masks. We were able to donate hundreds of masks and raise enough money to do so! We supplied food to the frontline nurses at Good Samaritan Hospital thanks to the support of all of you! We partnered up with Joe's Sirloin Burgers of Bohemia and Pizzeli's Pizzeria of Bellmore to bring days of lunches to the staff. We were so happy to see the photos of the smiling nurses who enjoyed the food! Together we brought joy, safety and full bellies!
