ATHENS, Alabama (WAFF) – The Listerhill Credit Union celebrated the new school year with a large donation of school supplies to iAcademy at Athens Elementary School, according to The Athens News Courier.
Donations included glue sticks, crayons, and even gift cards that teachers can spend on additional school supplies. Listerhill community relations specialist Sarah Evans said a list of supplies had been sent to employees so they could help donate. The collected supplies were delivered to the school this week, according to Evans.
“Athens has a fantastic community, and we are proud to partner with a great local school as we move towards our grand opening,” said Evans. “Supporting education has always been a primary goal for Listerhill, and appreciating our teachers is just one way we can do it. “
The director of the iAcademy, Amanda Tedford, said her faculty and staff are happy to get the additional supplies for the new school year.
“We are already seeing their commitment to the Athens community and are delighted to welcome them to our city,” said Tedford.
Listerhill plans to open its first branch in Athens at the corner of Bab Daly Road and US 72 next year.
