2021 Back-to-School Drive

The Team here at Island Federal had the privilege of packing up some school supplies for Suffolk County Legislator Sam Gonzalez’s 7th annual Back to School event in Brentwood. With the help of other community groups, over 800 backpacks were distributed at the event, enabling families and students to receive much-needed school supplies as local school districts begin opening for the academic year. The event took place at the Brentwood Union Free School District Administration Office and had such a great turnout! Thank you to Suffolk County Legislator Sam Gonzalez for including us in such an awesome event and allowing Island Federal the opportunity to give back to our community.
