Posted on 04/15/2020

PLEASANT HILL, CA, April 15, 2020 —Travis Credit Union launched and implemented a $1 million philanthropic initiative, will be disbursed to local organizations working to provide COVID-19 related relief services in the areas of education, youth/family, food banks, and small business support.  The Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) was named as a recipient of this initiative, along with nearly 100 other non-profits in the counties of Contra Costa, Napa, Solano, Merced, and Yolo.

In determining the donation amount allocated for each agency, Travis Credit Union considered the organization’s total size, scope of service and immediate needs, as well as all facets of support being offered to local individuals and families impacted by COVID-19. Receiving $30,000 from the initiative, CCCOE has begun identifying how best to support their students and educators during the Covid-19 outbreak.

“With this heartfelt donation, our agency will be able to better support the current technology needs of students in our county,” reports Contra Costa County Superintendent of Schools Lynn Mackey.  Mackey adds, “We will increase the purchase and distribution of Chromebooks, as well as provide access to additional WiFi ‘hot spots’ to students as they engage in distance learning plans.”

The CCCOE and Travis Credit Union have enjoyed a longtime partnership in assisting the county’s students and educators through the agency’s programs and services, including Teacher of the Year and College and Career Readiness programs.
