About us

Mission Statement

THE LEND A HAND PROJECT (formerly M'Yad L'Yad) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of the needy on Long Island based upon the highest ideals of charitable giving. Through anonymous pairing of volunteer Sponsors with Recipients, we extend a helping hand to provide not only material assistance, but also ongoing relationships, friendship and dignity.

Our Program

LAHP makes it possible to give in a way that is personal, yet always anonymous. We match volunteer Sponsors with needy Recipients, asking Sponsors to send gift cards to their Recipients at least four times per year in order to enhance their lives. Sponsors might also send toys, clothing, school supplies, or other gently used or new items that are best suited to their Recipient's and their family's needs. We are a local organization, supporting families on Long Island. For more information on how to become a Sponsor, e-mail us at or call 631.486.6636.

THE LEND A HAND PROJECT does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, citizenship status, age, disability, sexual orientation or gender in the provision of services to those in need.

THE LEND A HAND PROJECT, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations to LAHP are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
