A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” - Angie

October 8th, 2021 Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter joined with Good Samaritan Hospital, a member of Catholic Health, and the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition to kick-off the annual Breast Health Awareness Month Pink Flags Celebration. Pink flags with tags available for purchase to honor a breast cancer survivor or in recognition of a loved one who has passed due to the disease, have been placed throughout the Good Samaritan Hospital campus to mark the month-long awareness event.

“Good Samaritan Hospital has been a partner of the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition since our inception,” said West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition President Margaret Campise. “When a need for breast health resources became apparent, the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition was developed along with the Breast Health Center at Good Samaritan. Both have worked hand-in-hand since 1993 to support those diagnosed with and under treatment for breast cancer. These services are not only for residents in West Islip, but instead is for those throughout the south shore of Suffolk County.”

“I am proud to say that in the Town of Islip, we have three breast cancer coalitions, namely the Islip Breast Cancer Coalition, West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition and the Brentwood/Bay Shore Breast Cancer Coalition, who work tirelessly, providing financial and emotional support services to those in treatment for breast cancer and other women’s cancers. We are forever grateful to Lorraine Pace, one of the founders of the West Islip Breast Cancer Coalition for her groundbreaking research and development of the Breast Cancer Mapping project,” said Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

Donations from the Pink Flag event support those diagnosed with breast cancer in a variety of ways, including assistance with bills, house cleaning, food, wigs, prosthesis and other free services.
