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.
