LCUL Partners with New Orleans Firemen's FCU for Backpack Drive to Benefit Students in Trinidad & Tobago

While being a mentor at the Caribbean International Credit Union Development Educator course (I-CUDE), James Hunter from New Orleans Firemen's FCU learned of the hardship students in Trinidad had when it came to purchasing backpacks. He was so moved by the story of these students that he reached out to us at the League and proposed a way for us to collaborate, cooperate, and help beyond state lines.

We have a BIG goal of 200 backpacks and we need your help. Click below to get all the details about the drive!
