Wrap-up of the Foundation's "Back to School" Twitter Chat

As children across America head back to school, the National Credit Union Foundation hosted a Twitter chat to discuss how credit unions positively impact K-12 schools in their area.

“Credit unions across the country are busy right now prepping multiple outreach activities for the upcoming school year,” said Christopher Morris, Foundation Director of Communications. “Whether it be backpack drives, managing an in-school branch, or preparing financial education activities, credit unions do a lot to benefit their area schools. The end result is improved youth financial literacy and well-being, which is why the Foundation was excited to host this forum for idea sharing around credit unions’ school activities.”
