SeaComm recently purchased school supplies for 33 elementary schools…
This large donation is a component of SeaComm’s Pay-It-Forward program, which was created in 2017 as a year-long focus of giving back. The receiving elementary schools were all located in Northern New York, and specifically in the locations served by the credit union in St. Lawrence, Franklin, and Clinton counties.
The process of purchasing, sorting, packaging and delivering thousands of supplies was as lengthy as it sounds. SeaComm’s marketing department worked diligently to get these supplies to children in need as the first week of school came to a close. Each bin included crayons, pens, highlighters, glue sticks, scissors, folders, notebooks, art kits and more!
This large donation of school supplies will not only assist children in need, but also elementary teachers who, in the past, have supplied provisions for their classrooms from their own pockets.
You may have noticed SeaComm representatives visiting your community over the last year, performing random acts of kindness! The program has involved SeaComm staff in pumping and paying for gas, purchasing breakfast or lunch for local restaurant patrons, purchasing movie tickets, supplying groceries, giving supplies to area animal shelters, and donating local concert tickets, just to name a few.
Throughout the year, the Pay-It-Forward Program at SeaComm has impacted hundreds of unsuspecting community residents in an effort to make a difference in someone’s day. The collective goal of SeaComm’s initiative is to perform genuine acts of kindness throughout the North Country, with hopes of encouraging others to do the same for their friends, neighbors and perfect strangers. Be on the lookout for SeaComm’s next Pay-It-Forward event in your community!
