Can one person really make a difference?
On September 20th, Long Island Crisis Center will host its 7th Annual Suicide Awareness Walk, which we call Let’s Walk, Let’s Talk … Stepping Together to Prevent Suicide. A truly lifesaving community event, The Walk is a perfect example of the real impact that even one person can have in working to end suicide on Long Island. So, how far does your support go?
Here’s how YOU make a difference by supporting The Walk:
$25 helps us distribute our crisis hotline key chains and brochures to middle school and high school students across all of Long Island, through our community education workshops.
$50 helps us keep our six free crisis hotlines operating around the clock. This ensures that Long Islanders who are feeling suicidal or in crisis have someone to talk to any time, day or night.
$75 helps us continue our free walk-in counseling services. LICC is the only place in the county where anyone can walk in and receive free, short-term counseling in person, 365 days a year.
$100 helps us put a volunteer through our nine-month counselor training program. This is your way of ensuring the future of LICC’s 24/7 crisis counseling services.
$250 helps us continue our special programs and services for identified at-risk populations, including our Young Latinas Initiative, our Saving Our Long Island Veterans Initiative, and our Later Life Issues Initiative.
Just as Long Islanders in crisis rely on LICC, we rely on everyday heroes like you to keep our doors open and our phone lines running 24/7, 365 days a year. Please be that one person who makes a difference today!
