Suffolk Federal Riverhead Branch Supports Ecological Cultural Initiative

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 it wants to support. In Riverhead, Branch Manager Debra Castro presented a $1,000 contribution to The Ecological Culture Initiative.

“The Ecological Culture Initiative is such an important part of the Hampton Bays community that is preserving the ecosystem of our neighborhood,” said Ms. Castro. “Working with nature, educating our community on growing organically and donating local produce and herbs to food pantries are just a few of the examples on how they are making a difference. At Suffolk Federal, we are proud to support them and their efforts.”

“Thank you so much to Suffolk Federal for the generous support and for acknowledging the work we are doing,” said Jeff Shultz, director of public relations of The Ecological Culture Initiative. “This donation will go towards a future greenhouse, rain barrels, informational garden signs and garden tools.”

Founded in 2016, The Ecological Culture Initiative is a local non-profit that develops environmental programming and field projects in collaboration with community groups, culture institutions and government. For more information, visit
