Hope For Youth

Luggage Drive Receives Generous Support from Local Legislator

Suffolk County Legislator Tom Muratore recently made a generous donation of backpacks to Hope For Youth as part of our Luggage Drive to benefit children in foster care.  These backpacks will go towards restoring dignity for vulnerable youth who find themselves carrying their belongings in plastic as they move from one place to another during their time in the child welfare system.



“It is wonderful that Hope For Youth exists to serve our most precious commodity-children,” stated Legislator Muratore. “I was happy to meet Kate Travers, the Director of Program Development and contribute to this charity. An investment in youth is an investment in our future.”


His donation helps Hope for Youth continue to facilitate positive change in the lives of children, adolescents and families on Long Island.
