How To Help
We could never touch the lives of so many hungry and homeless Long Islanders if it were not for our friends who give so freely from their hearts. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, The INN depends on support from individuals, schools, religious organizations, community groups, businesses and foundations. Below are some of the ways you can continue to support our efforts to help our neighbors in need.
QUICK HELP LINKS

Collect Funds for The INN
