#WestfieldCares Launches To Support Organizations Addressing Vulnerable Populations

Westfield South Shore and Westfield Sunrise, through its #WestfieldCares program, donated over 100 gift cards to Family Service League for its frontline staff, over 100 games for the people living in their shelters, and 13 LAPTOPS for therapists to provide services via telehealth.

Westfield shopping centers on Long Island have launched #WestfieldCares, a program to highlight organizations and the charitable work they are doing to confront the effect the COVID-19 pandemic is having on vulnerable populations in our community. The program, part of the company’s response to the COVID-19 crisis along with monetary and in-kind donations, is intended to help drive awareness and additional donations for non-profits that serve groups such as those experiencing homelessness, economically disadvantaged families, seniors and children. 

Using #WestfieldCares, the company’s centers and its employees are posting on social media some of the ways they are working within their communities to celebrate and encourage giving back, with the hope of inspiring others to do the same. Locally, Westfield is supporting the Family Service League through in-kind donations including laptops for its DASH and therapy programs. DASH will use the laptops to continue to hold virtual sessions for individuals in a crisis situation who are feeling overwhelmed due to substance use, mental illness and/or other life stressors.

Westfield shopping centers Long Island have also engaged to thank first responders and medical professionals who are putting themselves in harm’s way each day on behalf of the communities they operate in.
