Denise and Gil are no strangers to Harry Chapin and Long Island Cares. While growing up in Huntington, Harry’s hometown, they often saw him around town. “I will never forget when he gave a benefit concert at Huntington High School for my friend’s cousin who had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He was always such a caring man and always gave back.” said Denise who went to school with two of Harry’s children.
Harry’s legacy lives on through people like Denise and Gil “With so many people who can’t put food on their tables, we felt compelled to give something” they said, echoing Harry’s famous message of “When in doubt, do something”
