TLC Community Fund "Tag Sale"

In the past four years, staff, faculty and deans have been committed to help Touro Law students with financial difficulties and it is very rewarding to know that our efforts are really making a difference.

We have helped our students with grants and loans totaling $9,600.00 since the TLC Community Fund began. This money have helped to pay bills, medicine, transportation and many other urgent needs. Our current need is so great that since February 2010 we have helped students in need with up to $1,500 in grants and a few baskets of food donated by faculty and staff.

Our TLC Community Fund Board makes a serious commitment to evaluate each case carefully. Every case that comes to us is reviewed by our members, situations are seriously examined, and a financial grant is given only in extreme circumstances. Many of our students are grateful to have a Loan option, when there is not enough money to pay for gasoline or food, etc., we help until they can get on their feet again. Our students always return their loans on time and are very appreciative.

On Tuesday, April 20 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. the TLC Community Fund will be hosting a tag sale on the 2nd floor concourse area of Touro Law Center in Central Islip.

If you'd like to donate household items, electronics, furniture, media, books, jewelry, CDs, games, etc. (no clothes) please contact Dreena Kutch at (631) 761-7103 or The sale is open to anyone who would like to attend. We hope to see you there!
