LONG ISLAND’S FORGOTTEN HEROES DOCUMENTARY SCREENING
February 15 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Join us in viewing this moving documentary telling the story of the Long Island men and women who served our nation and were somehow left behind and “forgotten” despite the many resources presumably available to them.
Matthew Simoni (a formerly homeless veteran) and Jade Pinto, Matthew’s wife and partner share a unique set of skills with outreach capabilities for these veterans, clearly setting them apart in their own niche in the world of charitable organizations.
Along with the artistic and technical expertise of Hazy Sun Production (FSC Alumni Tevin Foster and Julius Capio), they have been able to tell a ground-breaking story that takes the audience into a world they would otherwise have never known – surprisingly, a world right in their own backyards, with homeless veteran encampments and veterans searching to find a way to survive on the streets. However, Matt and Jade have found the equation for success that has been tried, tested, and proven to help them.
