Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Give the Gift of Sight

FACTS: 

In the western world, we take vision for granted  !!!  

We think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars for eyeglasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery. Good eyesight for us is essential as it affects every aspect of our waking lives.

It is equally essential for hundreds of millions of people in developing world countries who need glasses but don’t have them. Poor eyesight for them can mean the difference between working and not working, gathering enough food or going hungry, being able to read or remaining illiterate.

13 Million Children around the world need glasses. Many of these children risk missing their education because they cannot see well enough to learn    :  (

Imagine yourself with blurred vision…all day long….all month long…all year long.       :  (

YOU get the picture!  SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ???   While  you are SPRING cleaning,  when you find those old glasses that you usually toss back into the draw  (for emergencies) … pick them up and send them to US so we can help some of the half billion people of all ages to be able to have SIGHT !!

You can send your used (but not broken) eyewear to me at the address below.  Please do NOT send eye glass cases.  Just wrap in a bubble wrap or a paper towel- mark your package FRAGILE and send to:

Ammerman Campus –

Maserati

Want to spend a weekend with a sleek Italian sports car? Here’s your chance!

A weekend with a 2017 Maserati is being raffled at the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence Gala, on Thursday, May 4.

The Maserati for a weekend is courtesy of Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island who has been a supporter of the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s fundraising efforts for the past four years.

“Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island is a generous and caring organization that provides financial support for the students of Suffolk County Community College,” said Sylvia A. Diaz, Ph.D., LMSW, executive director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.  “The Maserati Weekend is perhaps the most unique raffle we’ve ever offered and our guests absolutely love the opportunity to win such a prize.  Just imagine the experience of driving around Long Island in a fine Italian sports car!  Where would you go?”

The Salute to Excellence Gala celebrating labor leader, Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO and the college will be held on May 4 at the Hilton Long Island in Huntington.

“We will celebrate and recognize a great labor leader whose advocacy for education and the middle class has helped advanced the most important engine in creating the American Dream and a better life for each generation,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

“The mission of the Foundation is to reduce the economic barriers to higher education and foster student success.  The Salute to Excellence Gala is the College’s single largest event held annually to generate financial support, community awareness and most importantly make a difference in the lives of our students,” said Executive Director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation Dr. Sylvia A Diaz. The celebration will begin at 7 pm.

Gala sponsorship, tickets and journal advertisements are available now through the Suffolk Community College Foundation website: https://sunysuffolk.thankyou4caring.org/events/salute-to-excellence-gala

4/23/17 – Selden, NY: Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Out Of the Darkness Walk

Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Sunday, April 23, 2017 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

FROM:           Dr. Thomas S. Tyson. College Associate Dean for Mental Health Services

Subject:          Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

I am pleased to share with you that the College will be hosting an Out of the Darkness Campus Walk on Sunday, April 23rd from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on the Ammerman Campus in Selden.  This event, which seeks to increase awareness about suicide and raise funds to fight it, will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

Join a quarter of a million people from hundreds of cities across all 50 states to raise awareness and funds that will save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. This will be the first Out of the Darkness walk to take place at a college on Long Island.  We thank Ammerman Campus student, Anne Deubel, for proposing this event idea.  Anne, working  closely with Sarah Boles, Faculty Coordinator for Mental Health Services, has been able to initiate the planning necessary to introduce a local Long Island walk on a Suffolk campus.

When someone participates in the Out of the Darkness Campus Walk, they join the effort with thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.  We are looking for supporters in the college community who understand the growing concern about suicidal behavior and are willing to do something to bolster efforts to prevent suicide.

For more information, please go online and visit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) or their Out of the Darkness Walks-New York sites. To provide you with more information, there will be a meeting on Wednesday, April 5th, in the Southampton Building, Room 230 on the Ammerman Campus.  Anyone who would like to join the committee or participate in the event is invited to attend.

Thank you in advance for considering providing support to this important initiative.
