The funds were raised through Connex Credit Union’s “Coins-for-Change” fundraising program.

 
 Saving spare change can add up and Connex Credit Union has a way for you to cash in your extra coins to make a difference for local causes. As a part of its community-giving program ConnexCares, Connex Credit Union recently donated $507.49 to the Eli Whitney RVTS Alumni Association from the fees collected by Connex’s coin-cashing machine at the Hamden branch. Connex’s “Coins-for-Change” program charges a five percent fee to members and a seven percent fee to non-members and donates the fees collected to charitable organizations in the local community.
 
“We’d like to thank Connex Credit Union and everyone that counted their change the first quarter of this year at the Hamden Branch,” said John Alexander, president, Eli Whitney RVTS Alumni Association. “The money raised will be used in the next school year (2015-2016) since the current school year has almost concluded. Thank you again to Connex and its members for helping.”
 
The Eli Whitney Alumni Association was designed to assist students in gaining a proper education by lessening the effects of budgetary constraints. In the past, the association has sponsored scholarships, helped students acquire necessary tools and uniforms and even purchased toner for the printers when the budget tightened up.
 
If you are a local non-profit or charitable organization interested in participating in the “Coins-for-Change” program, please contact Roquita Johnson at Connex Credit Union, at 203-603-5787 or rjohnson@connexcu.org.
