Newsday Charities, a fund of the McCormick Foundation, has generously awarded Family Service League a $90,000 grant in support of two of its vital programs.

Part of the $90,000 grant from one of Family Service League’s most generous supporters will help fund the organization’s camp program which provides a summer camp experience to children from low-income families.

Funded entirely through private, foundation, and corporate donations, the camp program allows children to be able to experience numerous adventures and learning experiences they would not otherwise encounter. Summer camp provides opportunities for these children to swim, play sports, learn new skills, sleep away from home, study nature, make new friends, and much more.
