SkyPoint FCU Launches Community-Oriented Events
SkyPoint Federal Credit Union has been focused on helping tackle and combat critical issues impacting children and the homeless in the DMV (District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia) area.
The Washington metropolitan region experienced an 18% increase in homelessness between January 2022 and January 2023. SkyPoint has taken action this month, with its second annual Health and Hygiene Drive for the benefit of SkyPoint’s partner, Downtown Day Service Center (DDSC), a social services organization that offers services and support to individuals experiencing homelessness in Washington, DC.
Last year, only 36% of students in the DMV public school systems passed the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers reading exam – a four-point drop from 2019. Ensuring young people are well-educated and have access to resources to achieve bright futures is a mission SkyPoint consistently supports through various financial literacy initiatives. This spring, SkyPoint hosted a book drive in partnership with Easterseals DC MD VA and Brothers with Books, which resulted in the donation of 528 books to schools throughout Montgomery County, including Brookhaven Elementary School and Montgomery Village Middle School.
