The Islip CommUNITY Stands Together

September is National Recovery Month. On Thursday, September 26th at 4 pm, Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter, Drew Scott, former News 12 Long Island Anchorman, and Kathy Koenigsdorf of the Jake K. Foundation will lead Islip Goes Purple (IGP) in front of Town Hall, 655 Main St., to show that the Islip CommUNITY stands together, in memory of lives lost, those in recovery, those struggling and the Islip families affected.
