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 Sayville, Branch Manager Pamela Werner presents a $1,000 contribution to The Greater Sayville Food Pantry.
“I love working in a community where local businesses like Suffolk Federal, support local organizations that are making a true difference,” said Werner. “The Sayville community has come together donating their time and energy to the food pantry since 1990. My heart is filled with so much gratitude to those who keep this wonderful organization going to assist those less fortunate. We’re proud to be part of that.”
“We’re thankful to Suffolk Federal for their generous donation. In the last few years, we have seen a large increase in visitors,” said Chestene Coverdale, Executive Director of The Greater Sayville Food Pantry. “Schools now send home a list of supplies that each student is required to bring which has been an additional hardship for many families. This donation is going to help tremendously to provide food for these families since they struggle to afford both.”
