Sikorsky Credit Union helps local students get back to school

STRATFORD, CT (October 3, 2017) — The start of the new school year is an exciting time.  However, this exciting time can be stressful for some families who cannot afford to purchase all the school supplies their children need.  Sikorsky Credit Union members helped ease this stress by donating school supplies at several local branches, with items going directly to the Sterling House Community Center, a community non-profit organization based in Stratford, as well as local Boys and Girls Clubs.

During August, members gave generously, and the results were noteworthy. “The donation drive at our branch and Stationhouse Square was very successful.’ mentioned Danielle Walton, the branch manager of the Credit Union’s Oronoque branch.  ‘Our members gave generously, and many families now have the supplies their children need to get their kids off to a good start this school year.”

Amanda Meeson, Executive Director of Sterling House was quite grateful. “We can’t thank Sikorsky Credit Union enough for their donation of school backpacks and supplies for our Back-to-School program benefiting Stratford school children.  It is a wonderful thing for Sterling House, with the support of our donors like Sikorsky Credit Union, to be able to provide so many useful items so that the return to school is less of a financial burden for our recipient families.”
