Welcome to The Magic Penny, Inc.

Lucy Sumner, of East Northport, left her native village of Bompehtoke in Sierra Leone right after high school to attend college in the United States. Sumner gives back to her hometown through her nonprofit, The Magic Penny

“We wanted to be proactive and intervene before the disease really took hold in the area,”

Sumner said. “Prevention can be better than treatment.” Last week, the nonprofit delivered more than $5,000 in food and medical and cleaning supplies to Bompehtoke and nearby communities for Ebola prevention and awareness during the nation’s largest Ebola outbreak in history.

The effort was a combined venture from Sumner and her sister, Annie Bangura. [Read the Newsday article].
