On Tuesday, August 24, People’s Credit Union presented 55 backpacks filled with school supplies to children at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center in Newport.  The backpacks were given to children heading back to school in grades K-6 who are part of the Community Center.  

This is the fifth year People’s Community Enhancement Committee (CEC) has been putting this project together.  This year employees raised funds for the cause through two dress down days. 

“The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center is an important community-based organization here on Aquidneck Island.  People’s employees were happy to help the Center and the children in our community with their school supplies once again,” commented Tracy Rothstein, Chairperson of People’s Community Enhancement Committee.       

People’s Credit Union serves members through six locations in Bristol, Middletown, Newport, North Kingstown, Portsmouth and Wakefield.

People’s, a member-owned, state chartered, federally insured, community credit union established in 1922. Membership is open to all individuals. Deposits are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government.
