HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (May 4, 2015) – The LIU Post men’s basketball team gave a helping hand before the start of final exams to volunteer at the Mary Brennan Inn, a soup kitchen for residents in Hempstead.
During their visit, they assisted in feeding residents and handing out care packages to those in need.
“My staff and I are teaching our student-athletes the importance of being involved in the community, as well as being thankful for the little things in life that we take for granted,” Head Coach Erik Smiles said. “The experience that our young men received today was both humbling and gratifying, and we will continue to teach life lessons to our student-athletes.”
The Mary Brennan Inn addresses the issues of hunger and homelessness on Long Island by providing food, shelter, long-term housing and supportive services in a dignified and respectful manner for those who seek help. They are a non-for-profit, volunteer-based organization with a dedicated staff.
