TTCU Federal Credit Union donated $3,500 to Claremore Public School District this August through the School Pride program. Other Claremore-area schools benefitted as well. Rogers State University received $2,500, Sequoyah received $1,500, Verdigris and Inola received $1,000 and Pryor received $500.
“At a time when Oklahoma schools and teachers are facing unprecedented challenges, we want to reaffirm our support,” President and CEO Tim Lyons said. “We’re in awe of the way teachers and school districts have stepped up to educate our children. TTCU has been here for teachers since the Great Depression, and it’s an honor to continue that tradition.”
Over the past thirteen years, TTCU’s School Pride program has distributed over $1 million to Oklahoma schools, and over $37,000 has been donated to Claremore Public Schools thus far.
The School Pride program began in 2007 as a way for TTCU to give back to area schools. TTCU members select from among over 60 School Pride designs honoring area schools, and every time they use their debit card, TTCU makes a financial donation to the school.
A TTCU checking account with a School Pride Visa© debit card can be opened online or at any branch. Visit ttcu.com for more information.
