TBA Credit Union presented a $1,000 classroom improvement grant to Kristen Ryder of New Campus School on Monday, December 18, 2017.
The funds will be used to assist in creating a food pantry within New Campus School. Supplies for the pantry will consist of food, clothing, hygiene products, and any other basic needs of the students and their families. The goal of staff is to create a program that those in need can rely on, as well as give students the responsibility of shopping and organizing the pantry on a weekly basis.
“The community support coming from TBA Credit Union is wonderful! This grant will extend our ability to provide basic necessities to our students in need, and enrich school learning opportunities as we teach vocational skills in financial literacy, purchasing, and customer service as students maintain and replenish pantry goods through ongoing donations,” said Kristen Ryder, School Psychologist at New Campus and Willow Hill Schools.
TBA Credit Union allocates $7,000 for classroom grants every calendar year, and educators can apply for a grant up to $1,000.
