Farmingville, NY - Supervisor Ed Romaine has announced that the Town of Brookhaven Youth Bureau’s INTERFACE Back to School Supply Drive has sent almost 1,300 students back to school with the necessary supplies they need to learn. This year’s drive began on July 29 and ran through August 28. The Youth Bureau worked with local youth agencies to distribute the supplies directly to families in need.
“I want to thank all the residents and local businesses that contributed to this drive,” Supervisor Romaine said. “Due to your kindness and generosity, there are almost 1,300 students in Brookhaven Town that headed back to school ready to achieve academic success. Without your donations, this would not be possible.”
“Thank you to the Youth Bureau for finding innovative ways to help children and families in need year-round,” said Councilman Michael Loguercio, Town Board Liaison to the Youth Bureau. “The different drives this division runs throughout the year truly make a difference in Brookhaven Town and I am proud to work with them to help as many people as we can.”
INTERFACE is a partnership between individuals, good corporate neighbors and the Town of Brookhaven united in a common effort to provide help to Brookhaven’s less fortunate residents. It provides goods and services to those in need and addresses social issues. For more information about the INTERFACE Program and Brookhaven Youth Bureau, please call 631-451-8011.
