LIVE - Long Island Volunteer Enterprise
Founded in 1993, LIVE - Long Island Volunteer Enterprise - mobilizes volunteer teams from the corporate, academic and not-for-profit sectors to complete a one day project that will significantly improve the quality of life for many who live and work on Long Island. Now in our 21st year, LIVE has matched volunteer teams with not-for-profit agencies looking for assistance with varied projects. Visit our honor roll to see the over 400 companies and organizations that have adopted a LIVE project over the years.
In cooperation with the United Way of Long Island and the Long Island Volunteer Center, LIVE promotes corporate volunteerism on Long Island for the betterment of our community and helps renew Long Island's spirit, beauty and quality of life.
Studies show that corporate volunteering is a Win-Win situation for all involved. It benefits the companies by enhancing their image in the community; it benefits volunteers by promotiong teamwork, building morale, and presenting opportunities to develop valuable workplace skills; and it benefits community organizations by providing much needed manpower.

You’ll find LIVE volunteers sorting food products for LI Cares, and serving dinners at Maureen’s Haven. You’ll find them painting and planting at Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Heckscher State Park. LIVE has assisted numerous charitable organizations since its inception. Often LIVE volunteers are the uncelebrated gardeners and clean-up personnel who help keep our parks and recreation areas pristine and beautiful.
