EAC Network was pleased accept a $7,500 donation from Angela S. Anton (left), publisher of Anton Community Newspapers, in support of the agency’s Light of Hope Luncheon, held this year on March 12. The donation will help support the agency’s services throughout Long Island. Anton was honored for her service to the community.
“We are very grateful and proud of Angela and Anton Community Newspapers for their kind and gracious donation,” commented Lance W. Elder, EAC CEO. “Their generosity and spirit are truly making a difference in our communities.”
This year, the 14th annual Light of Hope Luncheon, sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union, raised almost $115,000. Proceeds support EAC’s 70 programs that help children, senior citizens, people with mental health and substance abuse problems, and families in crisis. Last year, EAC helped over 57,400 people.
