In an effort to support the charitable work of local organizations that serve the areas of Suffolk Federal branch locations, the credit union has identified nonprofit organizations to provide financial support to. In Eastport, Branch Manager Debra Castro presents a $1,000 contribution to the Eastport Fire Department.
“The Eastport Fire Department is a volunteer organization dedicated to helping our neighborhood by providing assistance on the beautification of the town, and supporting local food banks and fundraisers,” said Castro “They support so many important causes all while providing the essential responsibilities of the fire department. They are a vital part of this community and we are thrilled to be able to help.”
“Donations like this help us to provide to those less fortunate in our community by supplying meals, stocking up local food pantries and supporting annual fundraising events,” said Mark Yakaboski, Chief of the Eastport Fire Department. “In addition, we are able to purchase items for our volunteer members such as fire department clothing and refreshments for training and drills. We are extremely grateful for Suffolk Federal’s generous donation.”
