Legislator Anker Congratulates Longwood Best Buddies Chapter

Best Buddies

MIDDLE ISLAND, NY – On Wednesday, October 30th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker presented a proclamation to congratulate the Longwood School District Chapter of Best Buddies for being designated “Outstanding Chapter” for the 2018-2019 academic year at the Best Buddies International’s Annual Leadership conference recently held in Indiana. The Longwood Chapter is the largest out of the 20 active chapters on Long Island with over 200 participating students of all intellectual and developmental abilities.

The Longwood Chapter was recognized based on the incredible impact that has been made to develop opportunities for inclusion and acceptance in the school and community. As part of the nomination process, Longwood’s chapter submitted photos and information about their numerous activities, including fundraisers, events, and the Best Buddies Prom, which hosts more than 500 attendees.

“The example of the Best Buddies program sets off a chain reaction of friendship and kindness that extend far beyond the students’ time in the program,” said Legislator Anker. “I congratulate the students of the Longwood Chapter and their teachers for a job well done in providing a community of acceptance for their classmates and peers.”

Best Buddies International is the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of those living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
