OSWEGO, NY – Compass Credit Union in Oswego recently donated $500 to the Home and School Association at Leighton Elementary School.
The money will help pay for winter clothes, food and other student needs for the holiday season and beyond.
The credit union sponsors an in-school banking program at Leighton and six other schools in Oswego to help students learn about the importance of saving money.
