Warner Robins, GA — Robins Financial Credit Union is showing support for teachers by “granting” their classroom wish list.
Robins Financial Credit Union launched their new GRANTED Program, which encouraged local teachers who teach K-12 to apply for a chance to receive up to $5,000 worth of classroom supplies and teaching tools. The items ranged anywhere from LEGO® Education sets, STEM supplies, books, special needs items, classroom supplies, electronics, music and art equipment.
