Press release submitted
PENSACOLA, Fla .– On Wednesday, July 21, the Pen Air Federal Credit Union presented the Baldwin County Education Coalition with a check in the amount of $ 9,621.36 courtesy of the Share It® program.
“Pen Air is committed to supporting education,” said Casey Brueske, community education development specialist for the 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 past 11 years with this program.
Share It® cards give 0.01 cent for every signature-based debit card transaction made to the local school district of your choice, at no cost to you. Once enrolled, members select the school district of their choice from Escambia County, Florida, Santa Rosa County, Florida, and Baldwin County, Alabama, and the program does the rest.
The Baldwin County Education Coalition supports the 45 public schools in Baldwin County serving nearly 32,000 students.
“We are very grateful to Pen Air for their generosity and continued support for our work,” said Terry Burkle, Executive Director of the Baldwin County Education Coalition.
Over the years, Share It® funds have provided teachers in Baldwin County public schools with classroom literacy and professional development resources aimed at improving student outcomes.
“This year’s donation will help meet the needs of our most vulnerable students through a new service providing tangible resources through school counselors,” said Burkle. “A variety of school supplies, hygiene, clothing, health, household and food items will be available in a resource room in each school. “
