Grab a backpack & join First Financial FCU to gear kids up for back to school!

LUTHERVILLE, MD (August 17, 2018) — Join First Financial Federal Credit Union of Maryland on August 23rd and August 25th for two back to school special events benefiting students and teachers of Baltimore and Carroll County Public Schools.

Carroll County Public Schools and First Financial Federal Credit Union representatives will be on hand at Staples in Westminster on Thursday, August 23, from 12pm to 3pm for a school supply drive. All supplies collected will benefit students and teachers of Carroll County. Community members can also drop off donations at First Financial’s   Westminster or Eldersburg Branches through September 7th.

To benefit the students of Baltimore County Public Schools, First Financial is taking part in the annual back to school fair known as BCPS Fest, from 10am to 1pm on August 25th at White Marsh Mall. As an organization, First Financial has collected over 300 books in order to create the Book Nook. These donated books are available to students and educators. For more details, visit

Eric Church, President/CEO of First Financial FCU pointed out, “This is a favorite time of year for First Financial. We are busy welcoming new members and assisting teachers and students as they prepare for the new school year. These community partnerships are what we’re all about, and we hope our contributions can help to make this school year great! We encourage everyone to come out and join us.”

First Financial works every year to assist BCPS’ Tools for Schools- School Supply Drive and also initiates a school supply drive for CCPS.  School supply collection boxes are currently located in all branches. To motivate employee involvement, First Financial has instituted “Pay It Forward on Pay Day.” Every pay day during the summer, employees are asked to donate inexpensive school supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons, paper, folders, and notebooks to assist in the collection efforts.

As an institution that promotes education and financial literacy, First Financial FCU not only helps to deliver much needed school supplies, it also rallies the community to get behind the hard working teachers of BCPS and CCPS. Come out and support local schools today!
