Through the generosity of its members and staff, Suffolk Federal proudly raised nearly $3,000 in contributions for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island in Islandia. Contributions benefited the organizations’ Holidays for Kids’ Sake program, which provided holiday gifts, meals and other necessities to more than 100 families and nearly 300 children.
“As a member of the President’s Council at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island, I was overwhelmed by the need of the underprivileged families in our community,” said Keith Miller, Chief Lending Officer at Suffolk Federal. “Here at Suffolk Federal, we take pride in giving back, especially to programs like these. We are thankful to our membership and our staff for joining together to make a positive difference. We’re proud to be part of such an important effort.”
“We’re truly thankful for contributions made to our organization,” said Mark Cox, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island. “It’s a magical experience to watch children receive gifts that their families may not have been able to provide, and meals to families that are truly struggling to make ends meet. Knowing that we are changing lives makes all of our efforts absolutely rewarding.”
