The season of giving is upon us. If you are stopping by any of our office locations this week or next, you can make a difference in the lives of others during this holiday season by participating in our Food & Personal Care Drive. LIPSG employees will be participating, and if you are visiting our offices, we welcome your participation as well.

This donations will be benefiting “The INN” in Hempstead. The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) is a soup kitchen that has been helping those in need, right here on Long Island, since 1983.  It has grown to become the largest private social services agency of its kind on LI.   On a daily basis they provide food, shelter and showering facilities. More than 7,500 people are fed each week – and done so with respect and dignity.

Up until December 4th, you can drop off non-perishable food and travel sized personal care to any LIPSG or Deep Blue Med Spa location at the reception desk.  Please no perishable or glass items.
