SRP Federal Credit Union Presents Over $250K From Debit Card Earnings To Aiken County Public School District

During Tuesday night’s Aiken County Board of Education meeting, SRP Federal Credit Union presented the Affinity Debit Card Program earnings for 2023 to the district with an honorary check.

The 2023 earnings for Aiken County were $256,658.70. A symbolic check was handed over by Grace Helms, SRP’s Assistant Vice President of Community Development, to Superintendent King Laurence.

SRP’s Affinity Card program, which was established in 2018, provides funding to local high schools. Through the program, high schools can choose their own card design, and when a purchase is made using a high school debit card, SRP donates a percentage of each transaction to whichever school that particular card represents.
