“We get better together.” First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union commits to United Way Community School in Allentown with $100,000 donation
Francis D. Raub Middle School, a United Way Community School in the Allentown School District, received a $100,000 donation from First Commonwealth Credit Union to provide financial literacy education to students and their families, assist in funding the school store and support school-wide incentives for attendance and behavior.
The funds will be spent over three years and will be used to promote positive student behavior and strengthen a sense of belonging through incentives such as Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) rewards, student achievement events, among others.
“We get better together,” shares Dr. Carol Birks, Allentown School District Superintendent, on the exciting collaboration between United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley, Raub Middle School and First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union.
United Way’s Community School Network serves over 20,000 students in Allentown, Bangor Area, Bethlehem Area, Easton Area and Panther Valley school districts. As a Community School with lead partner St. Luke’s University Health Network, Raub Middle School is one of four middle schools in the city of Allentown and serves nearly 1,000 students.
