The Suffolk County National Bank (SCNB) announced starting November 7 and through Friday, November 23, SCNB will make a cash donation, as well as match donations made by SCNB employees, its customers and members of the community up to a total of $25,000 to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The Bank has set up an SCNB Hurricane Sandy Relief Account for the contributions. On November 23, the proceeds will be donated, along with SCNB’s match, to the American Red Cross, Hurricane Sandy: Help those in Need program.
The American Red Cross will be utilizing these funds to provide shelter, food, and other support to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The bank also indicated it will be cancelling its holiday celebrations, and putting those funds toward further charitable contributions.
“It’s difficult to think about celebrating when members of our communities are being confronted by major challenges and losses. At Suffolk, we feel that this is the right thing to do,” said Howard C. Bluver, President and Chief Executive Officer of SCNB.
Bluver added that if any clients are in need of relief, or to help rebuild, they should contact the bank.
To donate to the SCNB Hurricane Sandy Relief Account, please stop in any of the Bank’s 30 branch locations. You can access branch locations and hours at scnb.com. Contributions can also be mailed to SCNB, P.O. Box 9000, Riverhead, NY 11901. Checks should be made payable to: SCNB Hurricane Sandy Relief Account.
