Please contact Alexis Alpert, Community Relations Coordinator at nnycreg@fhssbyx.jvfu.bet for more information.
  • Provide three names for reference checking.
  • Pass a criminal background check. A $10 payment is required to cover the background check fee.

  • Must be 18 years or older.

Latest Status Update

  • This past Monday evening, we had the honor of sharing an emotional yet extremely heartwarming evening with the incredible team at Varsity Home Service: Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. This company truly understands and values the gift of giving back to the members of their community and by doing so, they are helping to grant the wish of 7 year-old Samuel from Lake Ronkonkoma who battles a severe seizure disorder. Samuel, who loves Woody and Buzz Lightyear, has made his most heartfelt wish to meet his favorite characters at the magical Walt Disney World Resorts. Due to the incredible support of Varsity Home Service, Samuel's wish will be coming true this upcoming September! Varsity Home Service also presented former wish recipient, Kyle, with a beach terrain wheelchair so that he can comfortably enjoy time at the beach with his family and friends. Thank you to our friends at Mary's Pizza & Pasta of Islip Terrace for hosting such a beautiful event.
