Charity news and happenings across the East End

Sweet Charities




Bridgehampton Child Care Center

Director of the Bridgehampton Child Care Center has released a call to action for the kids and families they serve. “As you know, the families we serve are economically fragile. Over half our families have lost income,” a letter emailed from executive director Bonnie Michelle Cannon stated. The center is looking for donations to help with meals, computers, and internet service for students. Visit www.bhccrc.org for more info.

$5 For Food

The Clamshell Foundation and East End Cares have come together to raise critically-needed funds for emergency food supplies for local food pantries during the COVID-19 crisis — including East Hampton, Springs, Sag Harbor, and Montauk.

Christopher Barry, an East End Cares member, is spearheading the community-wide effort with Kori Peters, the president of the Clamshell Foundation, asking community members to donate as part of their “$5 For Food” campaign. Donations can be made by visiting www.clamshellfoundation.org.

Southampton Animal Shelter

The Southampton Animal Shelter is hosting The Greatest Party That Never Was on April 30. It’s a very fake event for a very real cause. Visit www.southamptonanimalshelter.com/dontshowup. Once you purchase your ticket, an email will arrive with follow-up instructions. Watch on Facebook to see who else doesn’t show up. Your donation to this imaginary event will provide homeless pets with care and support.
