The Golden Fleece Foundation Awards $3,000 to NIS

This donation was made possible due to the efforts put forth by Jennifer Marmorato and Jenelle Gadagno, Manager and Assistant Manager of the Huntington location of Brooks Brothers, who nominated NIS as a recipient of funding for the Golden Fleece Foundation Community Challenge initiative.  The generous donation was used to purchase a Sensory Rover unit, which is a four foot bubble tube with light displays, music and aromatherapy.  This apparatus offers calming input or sensory stimulation, depending on the child's needs.  We are so grateful for this generous contribution!
