Langley Federal Credit Union, in an effort to continue their long history of community involvement and charitable giving, has awarded almost $200,000 to 39 local non-profits and other organizations so far in 2018.
Amongst many other, the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA received $10,000 in support of their Bridging the Summer Learning Loss Gap program, which offers fun and educational Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum and a STEM Fair for their summer campers. In addition to supporting financially, Langley Federal Credit Union employees gave their time volunteering at the STEM Fair and reading to the campers.
"The support of Langley Federal Credit Union bolsters the Y's efforts to reduce summer learning loss by engaging youth in literacy and STEM programs through our summer day camp. All youth face gaps that can prevent them from reaching their full potential – particularly kids living in lower income households due to the lack of educational opportunities during summer breaks. By fifth grade, children in low-income households are two to three years behind in reading compared to kids in middle-income families. Many children from our community would not have access to fun and educational programs, if not for the support Langley Federal Credit Union" said Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA CEO, Adam Klutts, "Langley Federal Credit Union is a true partner in the Y's efforts to help youth achieve!"
The following organizations also received generous donations from Langley FCU:
