Hauppauge-based nonprofit Long Island Cares has launched a new website that the organization hopes will enable it to expand its reach.
The new website places the focus on four ways to help those in need – locate, donate, volunteer and advocate. The website features 70 pages of information, photos, news articles, facts about hunger and food insecurity on Long Island, along with tools such as maps, locators by zip code and driving directions, and information on programs such as the Harry Chapin Food Bank, Kids Cafes, Mobile Outreach Services, Baxter's Pet Pantry, Veterans Project, and Advocacy activities.
The new LICares.org site was developed by Hauppauge-based firm Austin & Williams.
"The inspirational hope that they bring to our local communities should be shared and celebrated," Elaina Beato, account supervisor at Austin & Williams, said in a statement. "We believe the new website design will help do that, with simplified navigation, highlights of their incredible programs, as well as the events and corporate partners they work with in our community."
