SECU Assists with Governor’s School Supply Drive Starting August 14th

Banking - 5 hours 31 min ago

RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) President Mike Lord joined Governor Roy Cooper at Pearsontown Elementary School in Durham, N.C. yesterday for the Governor’s formal announcement of a statewide school supply drive to benefit North Carolina public schools.  SECU’s network of 258 branches will serve as collection points for the drive, which will begin August 14th and conclude September 8th.  The project is a natural fit for the Credit Union, which provides a variety of financial services to North Carolina teachers, public school, university and state employees and their families.

A photo accompanying this announcement is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/2df8567c-4177-4464-b974-e2b263d8a6fd

“We are happy to work with Governor Cooper and other partners –  the North Carolina Business Committee for Education and Communities in Schools of North Carolina – by providing donation sites in all 100 North Carolina counties,” said Mr. Lord.  “This important project aligns with our mission of service and our focus on education.  Many of our branches have held school supply drives in the past to benefit schools in their communities.  This statewide effort is another way we can have a positive impact on the lives of North Carolina children, their families, their teachers and our communities.”

The Governor’s office reports that teachers spend an average of $500 of their own money to provide classroom and student supplies each year.  To help expand the availability of basic school supplies across the state, the Governor is encouraging North Carolina residents to donate paper, spiral notebooks, pencils, pens, dry erase markers, tissues and sanitizing wipes.  Monetary donations will also be accepted and used to purchase supplies.  The supplies will be collected and distributed primarily in the local areas where the donations are made.

Pearsontown Elementary School Principal Rodriguez Teal noted, “Yesterday’s visit from Governor Cooper was an exciting day at Pearsontown Elementary School.  Having the opportunity to serve as the location for him to launch his statewide school supply drive was so appropriate because we have students that we provide a variety of supplies for every day.  As a member and Advisory Board volunteer for State Employees’ Credit Union, as well as a recipient of forthcoming donations for our teachers and staff, I feel proud and honored to be part of this initiative.”

About SECU
A not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by its members, SECU has been providing employees of the State of North Carolina and their families with consumer financial services for 80 years.  The Credit Union also offers a diversified line of financial advisory services including retirement and education planning, tax preparation, insurance, trust and estate planning services, and investments through its partners and affiliated entities.  SECU serves 2.2 million members through 258 branch offices, nearly 1,100 ATMs, 24/7 Member Services via phone and a website, www.ncsecu.org.
