Sugar Crazy, a sweet shop in Plainview, has donated $5,000 to the Family and Children’s Association Rise Up campaign.
The Rise Up initiative supports programs for runaway and homeless youth.
“Long Island businesses like Sugar Crazy are a critical source of support for programs that directly help vulnerable and at-risk Long Islanders of all ages,” Craig L. Pinto, vice president and chief development officer for FCA, said in a written statement. “Our Rise Up campaign raises money for our shelters and programs for runaway and homeless youth; other programs provide services to seniors and people of all ages with mental health challenges.”
The nonprofit FCA helps more than 30,000 Long Islanders each year. For the last 137 years, the organization has worked to protect and strengthen vulnerable children, seniors, families and communities on Long Island.
