CU Happenings – Aug. 9, 2019
IBMSECU’s Southeast Credit Union Foundation hosts third annual School Ready Days
This summer, IBM Southeast Employees’ Credit Union’s Southeast Credit Union Foundation hosted the 3rd Annual School Ready Day events to help local Florida and Georgia kids in need.
The SECU Foundation believes that children are our future and that investing in their success now is important. Members of the community and IBMSECU employees were invited to donate and drop off backpacks and school supplies at their nearest IBMSECU branch to help local kindergarteners start the school year better prepared.
More than 600 Florida and Georgia Head Start children and their families were invited to come out and participate in a host of free services and resources, including: dental education, new school supplies, shoes, clothing, and much more. School Ready Day Sponsors included Sage Dental, Spodak Dental, and the Pompano Beach Library.
The Southeast Credit Union Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered in the state of Florida and its mission is to improve the lives of children and families in the communities we serve.
Head Start is a Federal program that promotes the school readiness of children from birth to age five from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development.
