Sikorsky Credit Union organized Back to School Drives for kids in the community

STRATFORD, CT (September 10, 2021) — Sikorsky Credit Union organized Back-to-School Drives at their branches to give back to children in their local communities.

Members and employees donated generously and the school supplies were given to local non-profit organizations.

The nonprofit organizations that were donated to include the Sterling House of Stratford, Boys & Girls Club of Lower Naugatuck Valley, McGivney Center of Bridgeport, Boys & Girls Club of Milford and the Community Action Agency of Western CT.

“Now many children are prepared to have to a good start to the school year,” said , Shelton Branch Manager. “It’s important to give back to the community and we enjoy being able to contribute to the Boy & Girls Club of Lower Naugatuck Valley whenever we can,” she explained.

Amanda Meeson, Executive Director at the Sterling House shared “Each year we rely on individuals and businesses like Sikorsky Credit Union to provide the means to conduct our annual Back-2-School supplies give-away.
