The Holiday season is upon us and it is one of the most charitable times of the year. In fact according to the National Center for Charitable Giving, Americans give $57 Million to charity during this time.  Below you will find a short list of local charities and worthy causes that teachers unions on Long Island give to throughout the year.  If your registered charity is in need of some assistance, please visit our about us page for a list of teachers unions in your community that may be of assistance.  Happy Holidays from Long Island Teachers, Teacher Leaders in the Community.
