Democracy Federal Credit Union’s school supply drive helped students at four local schools start the year off right.

Nearly 50 backpacks filled with supplies were donated, along with $490 from Democracy FCU partner Mr. James Grove and the National Education Association. Additonal money was raised and matched by Democracy FCU. Four schools received $150 to use toward programs of their choice. The supply donations benefit students who attend:

• Amidon-Bowen Elementary School (Washington, D.C.)
• H.D. Woodson High School (Washington, D.C.)
• Jefferson-Houston Elementary School (Alexandria, VA)
• Suitland Elementary School (Suitland, MD)

The purpose of the drive was to give back to the community Democracy FCU serves by providing children with essential supplies necessary to be successful in school.
