True to its mission to support Long Islanders and local institutions making an impact, CMM Cares has made a donation to the Stony Brook Athletics “Seawolves Helping Seawolves” initiative. The effort supports student-athletes and their family members impacted by COVID-19.
The coronavirus pandemic has been an unprecedented ordeal across the globe, and local student-athletes here on Long Island are not immune. Not only have students been uprooted from their campus and had many of their sports seasons canceled, but the crisis has also created financial hardship for many of the students and their families. All funds raised will boost Stony Brook’s Emergency Student Support Campaign by going directly to assisting necessary expenses resulting from an illness to either the student-athlete or his/her family member. Other examples of expenses may include groceries, toiletries, academic supplies for online classes, equipment to ensure safe training, or scholarships to support additional years of eligibility.
“Our support for Stony Brook University, and particularly the student-athletes who make us proud every day, is unwavering,” said CMM Senior Partner Scott Middleton, an active member of Stony Brook’s Intercollegiate Athletic Board. “During times like this, having such a strong and supportive community is invaluable.”
