Security Service Federal Credit Union donates $17,500 to purchase school supplies for area children

Donations offset family costs amidst Covid-19 Crisis

SAN ANTONIO, TX (August 18, 2020) — With growing unemployment rates, families need assistance purchasing school supplies now more than at any time in recent history. In response to this, Security Service Federal Credit Union is collectively donating $17,500 to assist with school supply purchases across the communities it serves in Texas, Colorado and Utah.

One in six children in the United States lives in poverty and this statistic is expected to increase during the coming school year due to added financial hardships prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Providing school supplies is a critical step to success for so many students. The credit union’s donation will help combat the growing need for school supplies for some of the most vulnerable children across the regions where it operates.

“At Security Service, we know that how we respond during a crisis matters,” said Brandy Ralston-Lint, senior vice president of corporate communications for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “Whether schooling online or at a campus, children are in great need of school supplies. We appreciate the opportunity to provide them with the supplies they need to be successful during the school year and in life.”

Security Service is donating the funds to local non-profits who will purchase and distribute school supplies to area children in need. These non-profit organizations include SA YES in San Antonio, CC YES in Corpus Christi, The Salvation Army Salt Lake City Corps in Utah, and The Salvation Army El Paso County in Colorado.
