CSRA school districts receive more than $300,000

SRP Federal Credit Union was recently part of local Board of Education meetings to present checks for the monies donated to each district as part of the High School Affinity School Debit Card Program last year. The Aiken County Public School district in Aiken, SC was awarded a check totaling $256,658.70, with nine schools participating in the program. The Columbia County School System in Evans, GA was also presented a check in the amount of $47,797.80, with five participating schools.

The Affinity School Debit Card Program began in 2018 to assist participating area high schools with funding. Each participating high school designs its own card, and every time the card is used, the school receives a donation. The schools are free to use the funds any way they wish, and they receive payments quarterly. The funding has been used for various needs like computers, team uniforms, teacher certifications, incentives for students to improve their grades, and more.

“SRP is always thrilled to be able to assist our local schools through the High School Affinity Debit Card program,” says Eric Jenkins, CEO of SRP Federal Credit Union. “The support the community has shown their schools has been phenomenal. With every swipe of their Affinity Debit Card, cardholders help their chosen school be able to secure extra funding for things they may not receive otherwise. We are excited that as the program grows, SRP can continue to champion our local students and schools for many years to come.”
