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, Assistant Vice President of Retail Member Experience, Micah Schlendorf presents a $1,000 contribution to Camp-Pa-Qua-Tuck.
“Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck helps make the dreams of individuals with disabilities a reality,” said Schlendorf. “They are a true gem in our community helping individuals enjoy the beauty of the camp such as boating, arts and crafts, music and swimming during the summer. When we heard they were in need of raising funds for their swimming pool, we knew this was the best way Suffolk Federal could help support them.”
“The generous support that Suffolk Federal has provided makes it possible for us to continue to keep our camp a place where ‘summer is for everyone’,” said Alyssa Pecorino, Director of Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck. “We rely on donations to support our operations, scholarships for needy campers and the necessary upgrades and repairs. This donation will help towards our new swimming pool and create some very happy campers.”
