Educational Systems Federal Credit Union (ESFCU) provided College of Southern Maryland (CSM) students and their families with winter accessories and personal care items as part of its annual 'Warming Hearts and Hands' campaign. The event is supported by ESFCU Support Education Foundation, Inc. to bring hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and socks to students who may need a little extra help during the winter months.

In November, ESFCU also presented the CSM Foundation with a $100,000 gift as part of a renewed partnership agreement that has the long-standing partner of CSM investing even further in the college's students, faculty, staff, and college-wide initiatives.

As part of the renewed agreement, ESFCU has committed to collaborate with each CSM campus to support a variety of programs, including offering financial consultations with certified credit union financial counselors; providing financial education seminars; engaging in speaking engagement and mentorship programs; and sponsoring various college initiatives. The credit union has also agreed to support all CSM Foundation events including alumni fundraisers, class registration days, commencements/convocation events, faculty appreciation events and health and wellness fairs.

All of these efforts are in addition to ESFCU Support Education Foundation’s partnership with CSM which already includes offering a $3,000 annual scholarship to students; the annual $1,000 Maurice Erly Professional Development Award to college faculty; and this annual 'Warming Hearts and Hands' event.
