Every December, South Nassau staff members share their holiday spirit and generosity to assist those less fortunate in our community. In 2013, the program sponsored 12 families and provided clothing, toys and food gift cards to them just in time for the holidays. Also in 2013, staff members raised more than $1,500 to sponsor a meal for 500 guests of the Mary Brennan INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) in Hempstead, one of the largest soup kitchens on Long Island. Additionally, the INN received from the hospital’s Community Education department, 16 large boxes and six jumbo-size bags filled with new toys that were distributed to more than 300 families.
The Oceanside Chamber of Commerce is proud to name South Nassau Communities Hospital as the Business of the Year.
