Nearly 290 familiar faces across Kentucky, accustomed to counting cash and sorting information, found themselves stacking pencils and boxing up notebooks to share with thousands of Hardin County area students during a surprise giveback.
Employees of FKFCU met Oct. 14 for an annual training meeting with local students in mind. These are the same students who likely already are running low on erasers and replacing torn folders. The dwindling stockpile of school supplies is proof pupils are hard at work but reveals school supply hauls shouldn’t be limited to “back-to-school” season.
FKFCU gives back year-round. This specific donation was an idea turned into reality by all 290 FKFCU employees throughout Kentucky. The same employees met at Prichard Community Center in Elizabethtown for team building and special announcements. All branches were closed in observance of Columbus Day.
The donations include two Chrome Books, binders, composition notebooks, backpacks, calculators, pencils, markers and crayons.
The supplies benefit students of Hardin County Schools, Elizabethtown Independent Schools and Fort Knox Community Schools.
