Helping Long Islanders coping with health and economic emergency
May 26, 2020 (Deer Park) – United Way of Long Island’s “UNITED TOGETHER: A Response Fund For COVID-19” recently launched with contributions from leading supporters including a $12,500 gift from TriState Capital Bank. The funding is enabling the not-for-profit to take immediate and continued action as well as act as a source of support to provide relief to thousands of Long Islanders in their time of need.
As many families are experiencing unexpected financial hardship, the Fund provides direct emergency financial assistance to help meet critical needs of food and household essentials.
“Due to the action from our donors, we have already helped over 5,000 Long Islanders who have been unemployed or furloughed due to the effects of COVID-19,” said Theresa A. Regnante, President and CEO of United Way of Long Island. She added, “These generous contributions are ensuring that we can continue to help families, now and in the future, afford basic necessities while they are not receiving a paycheck.”
“We are grateful to be able to work with the United Way of Long Island on their COVID-19 relief initiative to help and support the Long Island community during these unprecedented times and need,” said Thomas Gilmartin, the New York City & Long Island President for TriState Capital Bank.”
