Educational Systems Federal Credit Union helps the education community go back to school
GREENBELT, MD (September 22, 2015) — Educational Systems Federal Credit Union demonstrated its commitment to support education by participating in over 50 back-to-school events held in the seven county school systems and three community colleges it serves. The Credit Union helped educators, parents and students prepare for a successful new school year by providing the necessary tools, including:
- Donated Backpacks – Employees of Educational Systems FCU hand-delivered 6,500 backpacks filled with school supplies to more than 30 middle schools and homeless student service offices.
- Financial Education – During new educator orientations, the Credit Union provided seminars on Building a Better Budget and Understanding the Impact of Your Credit Score. Educators also learned about FoolProof©, a free turnkey program offered by the Credit Union that provides financial education to students. The program also meets Maryland state financial literacy requirements.
- Back-to-School Events – Educational Systems FCU attended new educator and support staff orientations, administrator conferences, back-to-school nights and back-to-school fairs for educators, parents and students. Drawings were held at the events to win a “Support Education” basket full of school supplies.
- Tips and Tools for Back to School Campaign – For the third consecutive year, Educational Systems FCU invited members of the education community to share their Tips and Tools for Back to School on the Credit Union’s Facebook page. Six weekly winners were awarded a $100 Visa® gift card to help with back-to-school shopping. As the campaign concludes, a grand prize winner will be chosen and given the opportunity to select the school of their choice to receive $1,000 for school supplies.
“For us, it’s an honor to support education,” said Chris Conway, President/CEO of Educational Systems FCU.
“Helping the members of the education community achieve their financial goals and dreams is our mission, and we believe in being there every step of the way as educators, parents and students head back to school.”
