Give and Make a Real Difference for Long Islanders in Need

This Giving Tuesday we reach out to all of our supporters in hopes that you will continue to support Law Services, the largest provider of free civil legal assistance to Long Islanders in need. The past few years have shown us when we help, respect and support each other, together we can accomplish anything, and our Long Island communities will once again thrive. For many having Long Islanders a stable income, permanent housing, a home to call their own, having access to healthcare etc., and most importantly access to equal justice under law, they will then have the support they need to begin to rebuild their lives.

This year we are asking you to consider signing up for monthly recurring donations in the amount of $30 or more and make a significant impact to Long Islanders most vulnerable residents and families. Your continued support can really make a difference to your neighbors in need and will assist NSLS so we can continue “Doing What’s Legally Possible to Create a Just World.” We are Long Islanders helping Long Islanders.

Though Giving Tuesday is November 29, 2022, we’ll be starting this campaign on November 1st and will run it through the end of the year. We will hold our standard Giving Tuesday Campaign along with our new Lawyer Led Campaign*. We are asking all law firms to have their associates recruit monthly recurring donors from their colleagues in the amount of $30 or more. A friendly competition within your law firm and among other law firms. All law firms who participate will be acknowledged and listed on our website. The law firm who has the most colleagues sign up for monthly recurring donations will be acknowledged as our Gold Medal Support, the second highest as our Silver Medal Supporter, and the third highest as our Bronze Medal Supporter. Framed appreciation certificates will be given to each of the associates who participate as well as the firm they are employed with. All monthly recurring donors will receive a beautiful canvas tote. For more information on how your law firm can participate in the lawyer led campaign, please contact Cathy Lucidi, Director of Community Relations at 631 232-2400 Ext. 3324.
