EPISD Education Foundation will continue to award scholarships to seniors

High-school seniors in the District will still receive scholarships from the EPISD Education Foundation in May even if the school closures prevent organizers from hosting award ceremonies.

“We had an overwhelming response from our seniors this year and remain committed to helping our seniors reach their college dreams,” said foundation president Russell Wiggs. “Given the current circumstances, we know our scholarships will be especially important to our seniors.”

Students who are selected as scholars can expect to get an emailed letter in May with details on how to access their scholarship to ensure their college or university receives the funds for the fall semester.

The EPISD Education Foundation’s biggest fundraiser – the annual District Address – was canceled this spring, but many of the sponsors and donors chose to continue their financial support to the foundation to support both scholarships and classroom grant programs.

“We are grateful for the businesses and our community partners who understand the financial need of our seniors – especially ABM, who committed $25,000 to the District Address,” said superintendent Juan E. Cabrera.  “Their outpouring of generosity and support for the Class of 2020 is humbling. It gives our seniors a glimmer of hope during this uncertain time.”

Sponsors include: ABM, Engage2Learn, Jacobs Engineering, Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, Hospitals of Providence, Teachers Federal Credit Union, Texas Gas Services, Mounce Green Myers Safi, Hilltop Securities, Norton Fulbright Rose, Piper Jaffray and Georgina Williams and the EPISD Council of PTAs.

“We also are grateful for the employees of EPISD who participated in the Employee Giving Campaign in the fall,” Wiggs said. “Every dollar we receive makes a difference to our EPISD students and teachers.”

Other businesses or individuals interested in supporting EPISD Education Foundation’s scholarship fund can email foundation@episd.org.

TFCU Donates over $31,900 to El Paso Shooting Victims’ Fund

On Monday morning, officials with Teacher’s Federal Credit Union (TFCU) announced they were able to donate $31,967 to the El Paso Shooting Victims’ Fund.

“Although no amount of donations could ever erase what happened on that day; TFCU is humbled by the outpouring of support employees, and members showed the victims and their families with their generosity,” said Max Villaronga, President and CEO of TFCU.

TFCU is sincerely grateful for its members, employees, and community partners for uniting to support the victims and their families.

“The donation was made possible thanks to the generosity of TFCU members, and its employees,” TFCU officials added via a news release.

TFCU also supported the local fundraising efforts of Proper Printshop by purchasing 254 Viva La Mocha “El Paso Strong” T-shirts for employees to wear in support through October 12, 2019.

Indirectly, the credit union donated an additional $3,810 to the Shooting Victims’ Fund via the locally-owned print shop.

On Tuesday, Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU) announced its highly anticipated High School Spirit Debit Card Program to the community and education partners at a pep-rally style press conference, with the help of high school mascots, drum lines, and cheerleaders.

Donations will be presented to schools twice a year and will benefit different organizations, clubs, and sports teams.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to our community in such an impactful way,” said Alejandro Yu, Vice President of Marketing at TFCU. “Plus, anyone in the community can participate and actively give back to the school of their choice.”

TFCU Team Donated Over 6k Books to El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation

What started as an internal book drive hosted by our Teacher’s Federal Credit Union’s (TFCU) Credit Union Young Professionals (CUYP), turned into an inter-department competition to collect the most books.
“Our team has the reputation of going the extra mile when it comes to customer service; it doesn’t surprise me that the TFCU team has the same mindset when it comes to giving back to our community,” said Max Villaronga, CEO and President of TFCU.

He added, “It is our hope that the books donated will allow the children going through a difficult time, to experience the small joy of escaping into their imagination through the power of storytelling.”

TFCU team member, Maria Aldridge, organized a pancake fundraiser in her free time to purchase books. Some of our employees reached out to educators from Bel Air High School and Lee Elementary for gently used books.
Mrs. Berry, a long-standing TFCU member and Sageland Elementary teacher, donated 1,200 books to the cause.

In total, 215 TFCU employees collected 6,690 books for the young patients at El Paso Children’s Hospital and University Medical Center, an average of 31 books per employee.
