Amazon donates laptops and backpacks for Shirley opening

Amazon has donated laptop computers and backpacks filled with school supplies to celebrate the opening of its new delivery station in Shirley.

YouthBuild Long Island, a program from United Way of Long Island, received 10 laptops, while the Boys & Girls Club of the Bellport Area was given 100 backpacks filled with school supplies.

Amazon’s new delivery station in Shirley, which officially opens for business this week, is located in a 103,000 square-foot building at 100 Precision Drive. Packages are shipped to delivery stations from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.

The Shirley facility will create more than 100 full and part-time associate jobs, all paying at least $15 per hour.

Amazon is currently hiring associates as well as drivers for its Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex.
