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 Laura Sferruzzo presents a $1,000 contribution to The Eastport Green Project.
“Supporting an organization right here in our back yard is extremely rewarding,” said Sferruzzo. “It’s wonderful that so many people in our local neighborhoods lend a hand to this beautification project, which makes Eastport a great place to live and visit. At Suffolk Federal, we’re proud to be part of that.”
“The Eastport Green Project continues to grow each year as the community comes together to maintain the unique characteristics that make Eastport such an amazing small town with a big heart,” said Co-Founders Heather Spagnoli and Stephanie Turano. “This donation will help support several projects in beautifying the hamlet of Eastport and we truly appreciate the generosity shown by Suffolk Federal.”

About The Eastport Green Project
The Eastport Green Project came to fruition in 2015 with the vision of co-founders Heather Spagnoli and Stephanie Turano wanting to bring the community together to keep Eastport green, clean and beautiful. The Main Street Beautification Committee maintains the flower barrels and decorates for the seasons along with volunteer gardeners who maintain the Eastport Roots Community Garden, which provides organic vegetables to local food pantries and those in need.
