Community Resource Federal Credit Union gives Albany PAL Kids bookbags and school supplies



Albany – Community Resource Federal Credit Union is once again partnering with the Albany Police
Department and the Albany Police Athletic League (PAL), Inc. to give kids a head start on their
school supplies for the upcoming school year.

On Tuesday, August 13 at 3:00 p.m., representatives from Community Resource Federal Credit Union will be at the PAL Center @ 844 Madison Avenue handing out bookbags filled with school supplies to Albany PAL Kids at their Summer Camp. “We are so grateful to our supporters at Community Resource Federal Credit Union who continually answer the call to support our youth." said Albany PAL Executive Director Sgt. (Ret.) Lenny Ricchiuti. “Their generosity will enable our PAL kids to have the tools they need to begin a successful school year when they return to their classrooms.”

“When students arrive at school with their Book Bags, they’ll have the tools and confidence they need to help them succeed”, states CRFCU President/CEO Terry Langlois. “CRFCU is proud to partner with a program that contributes to a child’s education and development. The Albany PAL Book Bag Program is another way in which we demonstrate the credit union’s values of character, empathy and passion for members and the community at large.”

cops and community together in non-law enforcement settings. PAL accomplishes its goals by presenting
