Suffolk Federal is proud to sponsor the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County LEGO League Junior Robotics Team. In LEGO League, Girl Scout teams participate in robotic competitions by building mechanical robots out of LEGOs that must solve a real-world problem linked to a particular theme. LEGO League helps to build self-esteem and confidence in young women, allowing them to work together in a nurturing environment. They creatively problem-solve while developing their cognitive, social and engineering skills.
In addition to this sponsorship and several other sponsorships throughout the year in support of Girl Scouts, Suffolk Federal members donate their cash-back incentive—five-cents from each signature-based purchase made using their Suffolk Federal Girl Scouts MasterCard® Debit Card—back to Girl Scouts. Suffolk Federal also donates the net proceeds of each member’s Suffolk Federal Girl Scouts checkbook purchase.
For more information, visit www.gssc.us/lego-league. To apply for a Girl Scouts checking account so you can help to give back, visit www.suffolkfcu.org.
