Educational Systems Federal Credit Union is now accepting donations for Warming Hearts and Hands

GREENBELT, MD (October 3, 2016) — Educational Systems Federal Credit Union is inviting members of the education community to donate new hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and socks to help students in need through its Warming Hearts and Hands program. New winter clothing accessories for K-12 and community college students can be dropped off at any of the Credit Union’s 12 branch locations between October 3 and December 3, 2016.

Educational Systems FCU has sponsored Warming Hearts and Hands for the past three years. In 2015, 1,000 items were provided to students in Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Frederick, Montgomery, Prince George’s, St. Mary’s and Talbot counties. In addition to Credit Union members and volunteers donating items, employees also raised nearly $4,000 to help make a difference.

“Our core purpose is serving the education community,” said Chris Conway, President/CEO of Educational Systems FCU. “We started Warming Hearts and Hands because a need was identified in the education community. The school systems and community colleges we serve told us that their students needed winter accessories to help them stay warm during the cold months.”

Educational Systems FCU has 12 branches located throughout Maryland in Annapolis, Aspen Hill, Bowie, California, Cherry Hill, Clarksburg, Greenbelt, Middlebrook, Prince Frederick, Rockville, Upper Marlboro and Waldorf.
