Suffolk Credit Union honors first responders, nurses and military with ‘Suffolk Salutes’

Suffolk Credit Union is dedicating the month of May to recognizing the essential service providers positively impacting our communities.

Through its ‘Suffolk Salutes’ celebration, the credit union will honor nurses, police, EMS responders, veterans and active military throughout the month, coinciding with national recognition weeks.

Each week, Suffolk Credit Union teams will be visiting relevant locations to show their support and appreciation for the celebrated groups, including all Suffolk County Police Department precincts, EMS, and St. Catherine’s and St. Charles Hospitals.

“Suffolk Credit Union is privileged to serve many credit union members who have served in the military as well as healthcare workers and first responders,” said Michele Dean, CEO and president of Suffolk Credit Union. “We are excited to join in the nationwide events this month to let our hometown heroes know how much they are appreciated.”

During the month, Suffolk Credit Union will also be collecting donations for Paws of War, a local nonprofit supporting veterans and active military by uniting them with shelter animals in need of homes.

Suffolk Credit Union, a local not-for-profit cooperative financial institution, operates 10 branches and has 70,000 members, including partnerships with Suffolk County employees and unions. To learn more about Suffolk Credit Union, visit: or call 631-924-8000.
