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.
The start of the new school year is an exciting time. Yet, this exciting time can be stressful for some families who cannot afford to purchase school supplies for their children. To help ease this stress for many families, Sikorsky Credit Union organized Back to School Drives in their Stratford, Milford, Shelton, Brookfield and Trumbull branches. Members and employees donated generously and the school supplies were given to local non-profit organizations.

“Now many children are prepared to have to a good start to the school year,” said Maxine Jones, 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.
