Back to school with new supplies and a smile!
DOVER, DE (September 15, 2016) — Going back to school can be bitter sweet. Excitement, adventure, and even anxiety are feelings that many children and young adults deal with whenever summer is coming to an end. Thanks to the community, and the employees at Dover Federal Credit Union, kids can replace anxiety with a smile, new supplies and equipment.
Donation boxes were available at all Dover Federal locations for members and employees to donate school supplies to help students of the Smyrna and Caesar Rodney School District have a smooth transition into the classroom. In addition to the supplies, Dover Federal Credit Union made a monetary contribution of $766 to each school, which was raised through their employee jeans day program; a program in which employees donate to wear jeans, with the company matching donations dollar for dollar. For JBM, this donation will be used to buy new equipment for STEM projects in the classroom.
