Spread the word
Tell your friend or neighbor about our services and our mission. Word of mouth is our best advertising.
Clean out your closet
Pass on your unused belonging to our New to You Resale Store. Your donations help local families in crisis. Don’t your shoulders feel lighter already?
Meet new people – or choose an activity that is more solo. Doing something new and different may show you new dimensions of yourself -- and it will certainly expose you to new aspects of our community.
Pay attention, and speak up
Be attentive to what’s really going on in the lives of those you encounter: friends, neighbors, co-workers, employees. Do they have adequate healthcare? Have they been laid off? Are they in an abusive relationship? Do they have the funds to get back on their feet? Tell them about Barnabas. Connect them to help – and hope.
Include Barnabas in your will
Updating your will? Consider making a bequest to Barnabas. Make a lasting impact on Nassau County.
Collect and donate
Do you golf, play tennis, sail boats, belong to a bridge group? Consider having your next gathering dedicated to Barnabas. Collect money and/or food, or donate your collective winnings to those less fortunate than you.
Support Barnabas financially. We depend almost entirely on private donations from churches, organizations, and friends like you.
Consider making a monthly or ongoing donation that is meaningful to you. Express your support for individuals and families in crisis in a regular way, instead of once a year.
Crisis is real. Talk about it.
Tell others about the homeless, the hungry, and those needing affordable healthcare in Nassau County. Simply opening up a discussion about the many families and children in crisis in our community creates a climate for action and change.
Shop at New to You
Grandchildren visiting? Need to spruce up your wardrobe? Looking for used books? Consider shopping at our New to You Resale Store. Proceeds from our store are used to support our programs helping people in crisis.
And you just might be surprised at how good our selection is.
Is someone in your life celebrating a birthday, getting married, celebrating an anniversary, or deserving of recognition? Consider making a gift to Barnabas in their honor. It helps local people in need, and makes both you and your friend feel great!
