PENSACOLA, Florida — On Wednesday, July 21, Pen Air Federal Credit Union presented the Baldwin County Education Coalition with a check worth $9,621.36 courtesy of the Share It® program.
“Pen Air is committed to supporting education,” said Casey Brueske, Community Education Development specialist for Pen Air Federal Credit Union. “Share It® is designed to give our members an easy way to give back to our community through education. And that’s exactly what we’ve been able to do over the last 11 years with this program.”
Share It® cards donate .01 cents for every signature-based debit card transaction made to the local school district of choice at no cost to you. Once enrolled, members select the school district of their choosing between Escambia County, Florida, Santa Rosa County, Florida, and Baldwin County, Alabama and the program does the rest.
The Baldwin County Education Coalition supports Baldwin County’s 45 public schools serving close to 32,000 students.
“We are so very grateful to Pen Air for their generosity and continued support of our work,” said Terry Burkle, executive director for the Baldwin County Education Coalition.
Through the years, Share It® funds have provided teachers in Baldwin County’s Public Schools with professional development and classroom literacy resources geared toward improving student achievement.
“This year’s donation will help meet the needs of our most vulnerable students through a new service providing tangible resources through school counselors,” Burkle said. “A variety of school supplies, hygiene, clothing, health, household and food related items will be available in a resource room at each school.”
