Employees of Educational Systems Federal Credit Union brought the Credit Union's core purpose of serving the education community to life by proudly loading a school bus with over 2,000 donated backpacks to support Prince George's County Public School's Stuff-A-Bus event. The backpacks were filled with school supplies and will be distributed to middle school students at the county's Back-to-School Fair on Saturday, August 26.
"The continued successful partnership with Educational Systems FCU will allow thousands of students to get off to a great start in the fall," said Barbara Holt Streeter, Partnership Officer for Prince George's County Public Schools. "We are so excited and grateful. Educational Systems FCU is one of our top sponsors. Their donation of over 2,000 backpacks stuffed with supplies for our middle school students was incredible."
The Credit Union's donation was made possible thanks to its employees who contributed a portion of their paychecks to the Credit Union's "Backpacks for Students" program. In total, the Credit Union will provide over 7,500 backpacks to benefit middle school students across the seven school systems it serves. Each backpack contains a 100-sheet pack of college ruled paper, a pack of six ballpoint pens, a highlighter and a 12-inch ruler.
"For us, it's an honor to be serving the education community," stated Chris Conway, President/CEO of Educational Systems FCU. "Our employees' generous donations have helped us make a difference for even more middle school students this year."
Educational Systems FCU (esfcu.org) has proudly served the education community for over 60 years. With over $900 million in assets and 12 branches, the Credit Union serves 87,000 members in seven school systems and three community colleges throughout Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Montgomery, Prince George's, St. Mary's and Talbot counties.
