Charity Begins at Home

David and Robin Sigman
Port Washington Residents


Charity is a Responsibility

"It was an honor to be selected as Community Chest Citizen of the Year.  I have always believed that charity was both a responsibility and a blessing.  The Chest is an organization that supports many non-profits in our community that need our help; it is done not to garner attention, but because helping members of our community is the right thing to do."

Leonard Wurzel
2009 Citizen of the Year, Mayor of Sands Point

These high school students are so appreciative and touched by the support of the Community Chest - knowing that they have the support of the Port community is incredibly meaningful and valuable to them."
