Oceanside Library, Kiwanis Club raising funds to support local businesses and Mount Sinai South Nassau hospital during coronavirus outbreak


The Kiwanis Club of Oceanside and the Oceanside Library have joined forces to help the staff at Mount Sinai South Nassau and local restaurants, delis and other businesses, but they need the community's assistance. 

Volunteers from the Kiwanis and library staffs are collecting donations and will coordinate with MSSN to purchase meals from local eateries to deliver to its staff.

"It's a way to help those on the front lines and the local merchants who so often help non-profits in the community," a news release from the library reads. "We are proud of our partnership with the hospital. They provide us with programming and support throughout the year. This is a small way we can give back, at a time when they will be tested."

Kiwanis has kicked off the campaign with a $500 donation. Library staff members have also already donated.
