As proud Long Islanders and dedicated members of the local business community, LJM Group believes it is our social and civic duty to give something back to the people who allow our community and our company to thrive. Below you’ll find a list of charitable organizations we support, along with excerpts from their mission statements.
“The mission of The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island is to give comfort and shelter to families experiencing the pain of having a sick child in local hospital facilities. A “home away from home”, the House provides the parents and siblings of these children with a temporary haven in a secure and comfortable environment among other families sharing a similar burden.”
When you walk in March for Babies, you give hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money you raise supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. We’ve been walking since 1970 and have raised an incredible $2 billion to benefit all babies.
“Our Vision: a hunger-free Long Island. Founded by the late Harry Chapin, Long Island Cares brings together all available resources for the benefit of the hungry on Long Island. We provide food when and where it’s needed, while promoting self-sufficiency and public education.”
“Island Harvest is the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island. By relying on volunteers, in-kind services, and donated food, we devote more than 95 cents of every dollar contributed directly to our programs.”
“The INN has grown to become the largest private social service agency of its kind on Long Island. The Hempstead soup kitchen has grown into a multifaceted effort that remains grounded on a single principle – that everyone would be treated with dignity and respect. Anyone who comes to The INN’s soup kitchens receives a hot, nutritious meal, a warm welcome and access to whatever additional support services are available.”
“Since 1992, we have collected over 550,000 new toys and donate them to sick and underprivileged children in over 185 hospitals and child-care facilities across Long Island year round. We also donate therapeutic and recreational equipment. Donations enabled us to fulfill wishes and help families with medical expenses. In 15 years, we have never said no to a child in need.”
“Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter nestled on six wooded acres in Huntington, Long Island. Little Shelter has been dedicated to saving abandoned dogs and cats and placing them into loving homes since 1927.”
The Foundation For Sight and Sound’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for men, women and children with vision and/or hearing impairments.
