Over 600 people turned out to the United Way’s 2024 “United in Purpose” Gala, where Sands New York was honored as the Corporate Impact Champion.  To introduce the award, the organization showed a video of Theresa Regnante, President and CEO of United Way of Long Island driving with Former New York State Governor and Sands Senior Vice President David Paterson.  The segment included a conversation with two United Way beneficiaries, Matthew Knoblock, an alumni of United Way’s Power Up! Program, which led him to his position with PSEG Long Island; and Jennefer Maldonado, who received a DREAMS Scholarship to help get her through her college education, leading to her career with Brookhaven National Laboratory.  Both Matt and Jennefer thanked United Way and Sands New York for the support they received as they pursed academic and professional goals. 

Sands Senior Vice President Ron Reese was on site to accept the award, praising the United Way’s work in the Long Island community. “Sands New York is proud to partner with United Way to help provide critical assistance for families and individuals throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties.”
