Islip Supervisor Carpenter Offers Helpful Tips When Making Charitable Donations, In Response to Recent Disasters

Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter would like to remind all Town residents to be cautious when donating to charitable causes, and to make every effort to ensure that their generous donations are being directed as intended.
