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 Riverhead, Branch Manager Debra Castro presents a $1,000 contribution to Southampton Head Start.
“Southampton Head Start is a valuable resource in our community doing some amazing work,” said Castro. “They offer day care and education services, provide educational programs to parents focused on informative topics such as bullying awareness, pre-natal care and financial literacy, and so much more all on a $10 per child budget. At Suffolk Federal, we are extremely proud to make this donation in support of such an incredible organization.”
