Please Contribute to One Of our Ongoing Food Drives
HIA-LI's Annual Summer Food Drive is back! 

Looking for fast and easy ways to provide rewarding volunteer opportunities to your employees?  Worried it's a lot of extra work & not sure how you'll manage it, on top of your regular workload?  Join us again this summer by supporting our Annual Summer Food Drive, sponsored by the Hauppauge Industrial Association- Long Island.  Now through September 1st, businesses all across Long Island team up to raise 100,000 pounds of food to fight summer hunger!

There's two easy ways to get involved! Donate urgently needed items, which you find here. Or, organize your own food drive! Virtually all you need to do is sign up...and then spread the word. 

Do something good this summer!
