Westbury, NY LIREG co-presidents Sean Cronin and Allison Brennan awarded emergency grants to two Long Island charities.
Cronin said, “The Steering Committee met via video conference. The committee felt it appropriate to contribute to those who are on the front lines helping the Long Island community despite the fact that our typical charitable grants must be real estate project oriented.”
Brennan said, “A recommendation to make a $5000 contribution to Northwell Health’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund along with a $5000 contribution to Long Island Cares to provide meals to seniors was unanimously approved.”
In 2019 LIREG donated $165,000 in project grants to five local charities. The recipients were:
- The Safe Center LI;
- The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County;
- Response Crisis Center;
- Pal-O-Mine Equestrian; and
- Helen Keller Services for the Blind.
LIREG raised the funds through member contributions and fund-raising events held throughout the year.
Since its founding in 2004, LIREG has contributed more than $1.6 million in grants to numerous real estate-related projects undertaken by charities on Long Island.
