NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Langley Federal Credit Union donated $10,000 to the Virginia Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA for support of their Summer Learning Loss Prevention initiative and Bright Beginnings back to school event. The donation will help provide scholarships for 100 children to attend the 10 week day camp and participate in the YMCA’s Bright Beginnings back to school event at the end of the summer. 

"We are excited that Langley will be a partner of this year’s YMCA Summer Learning Loss Prevention initiative”, stated YMCA’s Director of Association Advancement Leslie Bryant. “The plan is designed to weave reading and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) together with fun activities in a seamless manner so that campers will work on improving their academic. The goal of this initiative is to ensure that children are entering back to school with the confidence to take on new challenges, the social skills to function productively in large groups, and develop an excitement for learning." 

As part of the donation, Langley also sponsored The Bright Beginnings back to school event which will be held the third week of August. Children are paired with a volunteer shopping buddy. Together, they shop for two outfits, shoes, socks, underwear and a warm sweater or jacket. Backpacks provided for each child are filled with grade-appropriate school supplies. 

Langley Federal Credit Union serves over 262,000 members and has more than $2.3 billion in assets, ranking the financial cooperative as one of the 100 largest credit unions in the country. Located in Hampton Roads, Langley has 18 branches and has served the community for more than 81 years. For more information, visit www.langleyfcu.org
