The Long Island Community Chest (LICC) was founded by Matt Silver and Jamie Austin, when they realized there were many families that were slipping through the cracks, needing a little help to get them back on the right track.

They wanted to prevent short-term family crises from turning into long-term problems. So they set upon creating an organization that would provide opportunities for individuals and companies to give back to the local community in a positive and uplifting way. Today Long Island Community Chest is made up of individuals and companies based on Long Island who are making a difference.LICC is an on-going fund that provides immediate, short-term financial support to needy individuals and families on Long Island.

It is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization interested in helping people who have nowhere else to turn for support.These are the individuals in the community who have exhausted all traditional means of help.Fight for Charity is seeking to break its fundraising record in support of Long Island charities. Over the past 11 years it has distributed over $850,000.00 to nonprofit organizations to help fellow Long Islanders build a better tomorrow for themselves, their families and their community.

We’re looking forward to volunteering at the event. We hope you will consider supporting this wonderful organization.
