Stand Up For Homeless Event
The Smithtown Youth Bureau and Horizons Counseling and Education Center participated in the 12th annual Stand up For Homeless Event at Suffolk County Community College on August 28th. The Youth Bureau donated backpacks stocked with school supplies, and Horizons donated diapers, baby wipes, and baby food.
Homeless individuals and families were provided transportation by bus to take advantage of this wonderful resource fair. This event is presented by the Suffolk County Department of Social Services to provide assistance and support services to Suffolk County residents in need.
