Credit Union Accepting Donations of New Backpacks to Provide School Supplies for Elementary and Middle School Students
San Diego CA— North Island Credit Union has launched a school backpack drive to benefit local elementary and middle school students in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.
Through July 23rd, North Island Credit Union invites community members to make a difference in a student’s life by dropping off a school backpack to any branch location in San Diego County. Donated backpacks should be new and appropriate for elementary/middle school students. The credit union will fill all donated backpacks with essential school supplies. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego will distribute the stuffed backpacks to students in need on July 30th, in time for the fall school year. A complete list of North Island Credit Union locations is available here.
“We encourage everyone to pick up an extra backpack while doing your back-to-school shopping and bring it to one of our branches to help us give San Diego students the tools they need to succeed in school,” said North Island Credit Union CEO Steve O’Connell. “Starting the school year with a new backpack filled with supplies is a rite of passage that many families in our community are challenged to provide. Together, we can make sure every child is prepared for a successful school year ahead.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego changes lives through quality youth programs and guidance in a safe, affordable and fun environment. The Clubs serve kids ages 5-18 at 20 community-based sites countywide, making a difference in the lives of San Diego’s future leaders – today’s youth. Through its Back 2 School Drive, its members receive all the basic necessities to start the school year off right.
