Suffolk Federal recently contributed $2,500 to the Alzheimer’s Association in support of its Walk to End Alzheimer’s event, while family and friends walked the walk to support the cause.
“I have seen firsthand what Alzheimer’s can do to a person and how it effects families,” said Megan Diehl, Medford Branch Manager, Walk Volunteer and Team Captain. “All of us here at Suffolk Federal are proud to support the incredible work of the Alzheimer’s Association, which provides vital services to Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers while bearing the burden of the costs involved.”
“On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association Long Island Chapter, I would like to thank Suffolk Federal for their ongoing support of our Yaphank Walk to End Alzheimer’s event,” said Judy Wichter, Alzheimer’s Association Associate Director of Development. We’re also extremely appreciative of the efforts of Medford’s Branch Manager Megan Diehl for giving so much of her time as an active member of our Walk Planning Committee. To date, the 2018 Yaphank Walk to End Alzheimer’s event has raised over $173,400 and still counting, as we are accepting donations through December. These funds will help us to increase the reach of care and support services for our constituents and their families.”
