First Central Savings Bank (FCSB) has announced a $2,500 funding grant to sponsor The Long Island Library Resources Council’s Students for Climate Change program in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

The new interactive learning program will focus on a broad spectrum of environmental topics including climate change, advocacy, renewable energy, and education. The series will focus on reaching young children in low-to-moderate income geographic areas on Long Island which are more vulnerable to flooding and heatwaves, lack of resource distribution, and other risks exacerbated by climate change.

Tim Spindler, Executive Director of the Long Island Library Resources Council joined FCSB’s Chief Administrative Officer Michael Serao who was excited to see the program expand and come to life through the sponsorship.

“As a community bank, we are proud to sponsor this effort for young people and families to grow and learn about energy efficiency and support activities that promote climate resiliency through education, and empowerment especially of hard-hit income groups and demographics,” Serao said.

The Long Island Library Resource’s programs are free and open to the public to attend and will be hosted throughout the public libraries in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
