Wonderful Teachers

On behalf of Fighting Chance, I am writing to let your many readers know about an act of generosity on the part of the Teachers’ Association of Sag Harbor.

Last week, our charity — which has provided free counseling for 18 years to cancer patients on the East End — received a sizable donation from the association. We did not know it was coming, but it could not have arrived at a better time. Like many East End nonprofits, our main summer fundraising event has been postponed until the fall, so every dollar of donations — and I mean every single dollar — sure helps.

It also makes our staff feel appreciated at a time when they are seeing a surge of inquiries and counseling requests from cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy and understandably wonder if that makes them more susceptible to contracting COVID-19.

Again, much thanks to the wonderful teachers in this village of angels.
