Earlier this week, some statistics of certain communities in Sachem and how much money they donate to charitable organizations. The study by the Chronicle of Philanthropy released Monday looked at every zip code in the United States. Overall, Suffolk County ranked 23rd in the nation for giving.
Holbrook donated 3.6 percent of its income to charity, as did Farmingville, while Ronkonkoma donated 3.4 percent.
One commenter on our Facebook page brought up a good point. What about the time spent, as opposed to money? We broaden our question in this week's Talk Back.
In light of the statistics on giving, how often do you give of your time or money to charity? Take our poll, or start a discussion in the comments. Remember, our poll is anonymous, so it's safe to be honest.
