The Helping Hands Foundation was founded with the goal of helping Long Island reach its potential.
Since 2013, we have donated nearly $30,000 in scholarships to Long Island students. We’ve also instituted three annual goods drives at Adventureland: Christmas in July Toy Drive, August School Supply Drive and the Fall Food Drive. Over the past 4 years, we have donated thousands of toys to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, thousands of school supplies to students and programs in Copiague, Amityville, and Wyandanch School Districts, and thousands of pounds of food to local pantries like L.I. Harvest and the Town of Babylon Food Pantry.

As a pillar in the Long Island community, L.I. Adventureland's Helping Hands Foundation aims to develop a network of support between local businesses and community based non-profit organizations.
Helping Hands is the non-profit branch of L.I. Adventureland that supports the Long Island community in increasing awareness about local issues, supporting local initiatives, and providing educational resources for community residents.
L.I. Adventureland is excited and eager to become more active in the community that has made us a part of their families for over fifty years. Through the creation of the Helping Hands Foundation, we feel we can finally give Long Island organizations the chance to reach their potential and make Long Island the best it can be.
