Farmingville, NY – Supervisor Ed Romaine has announced that the Town of Brookhaven Youth Bureau’s INTERFACE Back to School Drive has sent more than 700 students back to school with the necessary supplies they need to learn. This year’s drive began on July 30 and ran through August 27. The Youth Bureau worked with local youth agencies to distribute the supplies directly to families in need.
Supervisor Romaine said “During the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become more difficult to collect the school supplies that will help those in need in Brookhaven Town. I want to thank all the residents and local businesses that contributed to this drive. Without their support, the success of our Back to School Drive would not be possible.”
Councilman Michael Loguercio, Town Board Liaison to the Youth Bureau said, “Thank you to the Youth Bureau for continuing to find innovative ways to help children and families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, residents in the Town are relying on the bureau’s programs and services.”
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.
