Would You “Like” to Help Truliant Support Local Schools?
Winston-Salem, N.C. (August 14, 2013) – Truliant Federal Credit Union has supported local schools by donating school supplies over the last seven years. However, this year, they are doing it with a new twist. They have implemented a social media campaign called, Connect to Contribute. Truliant will make a financial contribution for every new social media connection they receive through September 1. For every “Like” on Truliant’s Facebook page, new follow on Twitter and/or LinkedIn, check in with Foursquare or subscription to Truliant’s YouTube, the credit union will donate $1 to the Truliant Fill the Bus School Supply Drive up to $5,000.
Member-owners, businesses, community groups, and the general public are also encouraged to place supplies, such as, backpacks, calculators, pencils, paper, and crayons in collection boxes at any Truliant Member Financial Center (MFC) through August 23. Supplies and funds will be distributed to support students at our partner schools
“When teachers are spending and average $700 per year of their own money on classroom supplies, Truliant sees an opportunity to help our community by donating school supplies to alleviate these out-of-pocket costs,” said Cristen Fletcher, public relations specialist at Truliant. “Connect to Contribute is a natural extension of this initiative by offering a chance for busy but interested community members to donate without leaving their home or office.”
Connect to Contribute and the Fill the Bus School Supply Drive will help students’ kindergarten through 12th grade from several high-need schools get the supplies needed to help them succeed. To learn more visit our Connect to Contribute page.
