Island in the Community
At Island, we strongly believe that it is as important to share our success with our neighbors as well as our members. In keeping with the credit union philosophy of "people helping people," Island supports a select number of organizations and events to help ensure that Long Island remains a vital place to live, work and raise a family.
Thank You For Your Contribution!
Island would like to thank our members and staff for taking part in the Thankful Thursdays Food Drive in November. Collectively, we've donated 463 lbs of food and $1,000 in the soup can pin-up donations to Long Island Cares.
