Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union has donated 300 backpacks, filled with school supplies, to students in need throughout the greater Hartford area.
A long standing supporter of community initiatives, this is the fifth year Nutmeg has agreed to donate backpacks and school supplies.
This is the largest donation to date for the credit union of its kind.
“We believe in financial education, but we also believe in education as a whole. Students deserve to start their school year off right and we are happy to help them get there,” says John Holt, President and CEO of Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union.
The backpacks will be distributed to students and their families prior to the start of schools in the Greater Hartford Area.
