For over a decade, Central’s members have brightened the lives of many children in the area by generously donating holiday gifts through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tag program. Central and its members remain committed to supporting the local community. Age appropriate gifts were purchased and collected at Central’s facility, which were then picked up by the Salvation Army, who in turn distributed the gift donations to local families during December.Central is a continuing supporter of the following organizations and charitable events:

An accredited 248-bed, non-profit community hospital, Mather Hospital’s mission is to provide a wide spectrum of health care services of the highest quality to the residents of Suffolk County in a cost effective manner.
