Suffolk Federal is proud to sponsor the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County’s Discovery World STEM Center. Located at Camp Sobaco in Yaphank, this center offers unique services not only to Girl Scouts but also local school districts, youth agencies and underserved populations throughout Suffolk County. A diverse selection of programs are administered including environmental science, physics, engineering, chemistry, mathematics, zoology, and meteorology. The center also provides a place for girls to feel comfortable and be themselves.
“It is an honor to work in partnership with the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County and support their ongoing mission to support young girls,” said Sarah McCandless, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at Suffolk Federal and Board Member of the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “Knowing that our contribution directly supports the growth and development of young women in our own community is extremely rewarding.”
“We are grateful for the generous support of Suffolk Federal,” says Yvonne Grant, President & CEO for Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “Their gift to the Discovery World STEM Center will help to ensure that we can continue to offer unique programs and opportunities to girls that highlight the exciting the world of STEM.”
In addition to this sponsorship and several other donations throughout the year in support of Girl Scouts, Suffolk Federal members also donate their cash-back incentive—five-cents from each signature-based purchase made using their Suffolk Federal Girl Scouts MasterCard® Debit Card—back to Girl Scouts. Suffolk Federal also donates the net proceeds of each member’s Suffolk Federal Girl Scouts checkbook purchase.
