April 1, 2021 (Deer Park) – United Way of Long Island was recently awarded a $30,000 grant from Esquire Bank to assist families who are struggling as a result of the effects of COVID-19.
Esquire Bank’s recent contribution supports United Way of Long Island’s United Solution approach to tackling the education, health and economic challenges that many Long Islanders currently face. Brentwood High School students, in need of access to digital technology for remote learning, recently received new laptops. In addition, senior citizens sheltering at home received assistance with managing everyday tasks including grocery and prescription delivery, as well as scheduling their COVID-19 vaccines. The funding also provided help for families facing challenges in paying their home heating bills during winter months.
"Esquire Bank is pleased to support United Way of Long Island in helping our neighbors who have been impacted by COVID-19 and its economic fallout. Their ongoing efforts to address the most pressing needs of Long Islanders show the true meaning of community and charity," said Andrew C. Sagliocca, President and Chief Executive Officer of Esquire Bank.
“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Esquire Bank. Their contribution allows United Way of Long Island to make an impact in the everyday lives of seniors, parents and children who need a bit of hope right now. Together, we are helping families succeed boldly during this time of hardship.” said Theresa Regnante, President and CEO of United Way of Long Island.
United Way collaborates with its network of community agencies who are at the forefront of responding to the needs of people of Long Island to create high impact solutions.
