As the school year approaches, many families may be faced with economic pressures when buying school supplies. Many parents are unable to provide their children with basic school supplies; from pencils and pens to calculators and backpacks supplies are critical to students every year.
Corporate America Family Credit Union helps elevate some financial tension local families are faced with during the school year through a school supply drive called Project Backpack.
Corporate America Family Credit Union began supporting Project Backpack in 2004.
“Helping families by providing them with basic school supplies is so rewarding” said Pat Griffin, branch manager of Corporate America Family Credit Union’s Oak Brook branch. “Feedback from children and parents receiving the supplies over these past years has been such a moving, positive experience for our staff and members.”
To help, school supplies or monies collected for Project Backpack can be shipped to the Corporate America Family Credit Union’s branch 2111 McDonald’s Drive, Oak Brook IL 60523-8723 through Aug. 17.
