It is with deep sorrow and a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of long time Board of Directors member and current treasurer Steve Moll. Steve was not just a board member but a friend to many. He was a fierce advocate for Literacy Suffolk and a true believer in our mission. Steve believed that increased adult literacy is one of the keys to a stronger family unit, increased involvement in our communities and a win-win for American society as a whole. He advocated for us on the home front, in Albany, at Rotary meetings and everywhere he saw an opportunity.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Angela and their two beautiful daughters, Jessica and Sarah, whom he loved and spoke about all the time.

Literacy Suffolk staff, Board of Directors, and volunteers will miss his smile, his laugh, his support, his presence and mostly his love. May he Rest in Peace.

Robert Margolin, President

Our annual fundraiser at 89 North Music Venue in Patchogue was a huge success.  A heartfelt thank you to all the restaurants and businesses that donated gift cards and items for our raffles.  The staff, board and volunteers of Literacy Suffolk appreciate your support and recognition of our efforts in serving the needs of our community.

If you would like to leave a donation in memory of Steve, please do so below:​



THANK YOU!

Literacy Suffolk is proud to have been awarded $5,000 from the Make Your Pitch for Education grant co-sponsored by Entercom and BNB Bank.

We had a great time at the ceremony where we got to meet spokesperson Tyler Austin formerly of the Yankees and all the sponsors of the grant.

We also toured WFAN and WINS radio station. We are so grateful for this award which will be used toward financial literacy workshops for parents and children.


Our office is still closed but the staff, volunteers and students are busy working.  Many of our students and tutors are meeting online to continue their studies and more are getting on board every day.  We are conducting tutor support meetings by Zoom and passing along everything we are learning to our tutors.


If you have any questions, please email us at Admin@LiteracySuffolk.org


We are so grateful to all of our volunteers, students and community partners who continue to support our mission.


Stay safe and hope to see you soon!
Susan
