    In 1961 a group of Huntington residents came together with the goal of helping those in need in our great town. Their mission was to raise funds within the community to assist the local charities which make our community stronger. The Townwide Fund of Huntington bridges the gap between dwindling governmental support for local charities and the increasing needs of community residents. The Board is made up of passionate volunteers from all parts of the Town. Their enthusiasm, along with the help from our neighbors has kept the Townwide Fund an integral part in keeping our Huntington community strong and vibrant.


    A clean and safe environment is every person’s birth right. It is not a commodity to be distributed based on purchasing power, nor a privilege to be distributed based on political power. Safeguarding the natural environment is inseparable from promoting social justice. All people have a right to a world free of exposure to harmful chemicals in our air, water and food, where children grow up healthy with every opportunity to thrive. We seek to build a healthy economy that provides good jobs producing clean products and services.

    The mission of the P2I is to provide a state-wide, comprehensive and integrated program of research, technology development and diffusion, outreach, training and education aimed at making New York State more sustainable for workers, the public, the environment and the economy through: Reductions in toxic chemical use,
    Reductions in emissions to the environment and waste generation
    and the efficient use of raw materials, energy and water. Learn more
