Join New Hour in Spreading Joy to Children This Holiday Season!

Nearly three million children in the United States have a parent who is incarcerated. These children are also serving a sentence that has lifelong repercussions, including financial instability, difficulty accessing even basic needs, poor academic outcomes, trauma, shame, and bullying.

New Hour for Women and Children - LI seeks to brighten these children’s lives by providing a holiday gift for any child visiting their incarcerated parent in December.

Here are ways you can help:

  • Donate an unwrapped, new toy or gift for children ages newborn to 18 years old.

  • Want us to buy the gift? Monetary donations are also welcome!

  • See the smiles for yourself by volunteering for a shift to distribute the toys in December.

 

Donations can be dropped off at our office in Brentwood or contact us to arrange pick up. Monetary donations can be made in person, by check, or online.

For more information, please contact Executive Director Serena Liguori at 631-273-3300, 631-672-7147, or sliguori@newhourli.org.
