Mercer County Credit Union Donates $5K to Junior Achievement

HERMITAGE, Pa. – Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union recently donated $5,000 to Junior Achievement of Western PA. 

The funds will be used to support JA’s programs for students in Mercer County area schools that promote financial capability, work and career readiness and business ownership.

Mercer County Community FCU also received the Community Collaborative Award in recognition of the partnership with JA. Credit union staff members serve as volunteers to teach financial literacy lessons in local schools, attend career fairs and take part in JA BIZTown, a fully interactive, simulated town where students learn about the business world and everyday life. 

“We’re proud to know that we’re making a positive impact on so many young people’s lives through JA,” said Sandi Carangi, CEO of Mercer County Community FCU.
