UNIONDALE, N.Y., May 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flushing Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: FFIC), the parent holding company for Flushing Bank (the “Bank”), today announced it sponsored the United Way of Long Island’s SunFunders Challenge that was held at the North Hempstead Country Club.

John R. Buran stated, “We have been a longtime supporter of United Way of Long Island programs. This event was held to raise funds for United Way of Long Island to transform its 31,000 square foot headquarters into a net-zero building, meaning it will produce as much energy as it uses. This effort is expected to generate more than $65,000 in annual savings that can be reinvested in programs that support those in need of assistance on Long Island.”

Theresa A Regnante, President and CEO of United Way of Long Island said, “We are grateful for Flushing Bank’s continued generosity in support of United Way of Long Island’s mission. Flushing Bank’s commitment of being tonight’s event sponsor was the catalyst to bringing people together in support of a project that will make significant impact on our organization. In turn, the cost savings of our soon-to-be net zero building will allow us to provide more opportunities to families and individuals who live here.”
