Over 300,000 Long Islanders face food insecurity, including over 79,000 children.
2021 marks the 40th anniversary of Long Island losing one of its greatest advocates – Harry Chapin. Beginning June 25th, Long Island Cares, WhyHunger, and the Harry Chapin Foundation will commemorate the lasting impact of a great humanitarian throughout July with concerts, food drives, and more.
Let’s all come together and spread Harry Chapin’s message:
“To know is to care, to care is to act, to act is to make a difference.”
RESCHEDULED FOR MONDAY JULY 26!
Various musicians perform live at
East Meadow, NY
It’s a Food Drive Too!
Accepting Non-Perishable Food Items. On your way in drop off your items at the Long Island Cares booth.
Award-winning singer/songwriter Harry Chapin (“Taxi” and “Cats in the Cradle”) spent his fame and fortune chasing a dream to end world hunger and poverty, and in the process inspired, changed, and saved the lives of millions of people.
Is the inspiring story of Grammy® Award-winning singer/songwriter Harry Chapin (“Cat’s in the Cradle”). Chapin sold over 16 million albums and was one of his generation’s most beloved artists and activists who spent his fame and fortune trying to end world hunger before his tragic passing.
A portion of every ticket sale will be going to benefit Long Island Cares!
