Zeal Credit Union Donates Funds to Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program

Zeal Credit Union recently donated $1,000 to the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program (DAPCEP). The funds were raised from contributions of attendees to Zeal’s Incredible Science Machine: Game On! event on July 30.

The domino toppling and chain reaction event broke three U.S. records. It demonstrated the creativity and engineering abilities of the team’s 19 domino artists and chain reaction builders from throughout the U.S. and around the world.

“We selected DAPCEP because of its efforts to foster hard work and passion of young people in the Detroit area,” said Tiffany Sweet, Zeal’s youth and community development coordinator. “They represent the same values of Zeal volunteers, members and staff.”

DAPCEP is a nonprofit organization that provides historically underrepresented youth in metropolitan Detroit with innovative, educational programming in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

“Zeal Credit Union’s generous contribution will positively impact DAPCEP’s mission,” said Michelle L. Reaves, executive director of DAPCEP. “We strive to equip students with the skills and education that will lead to high demand careers in STEM fields. We look forward to a growing partnership between Zeal Credit Union and DAPCEP as we prepare students for jobs of the future.”
