Credit Union collecting supplies for students in need
Truliant Federal Credit Union will support local schools in the communities where it operates with its “Fill the Bus School Supply Drive” campaign. Collection boxes will be placed in Truliant Member Financial Centers (MFC) in three states as drop-off locations for school supplies. Member-owners, businesses, community groups and the general public can donate items such as backpacks, calculators, pencils, paper, crayons, etc. through Aug. 19 for students in need.
Studies have shown that teachers can spend up to $700 per year of their own money on classroom supplies. However, by participating in the Fill the Bus School Supply Drive, Truliant will help teachers from several high-need schools save their money with donated supplies that will support students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
“We are excited about the prospect of helping students and teachers with our Fill the Bus School Supply Drive. We hope the community joins us by dropping off donations at the Truliant MFC nearest them,” said Marjorie Rorie, director of community services for Truliant.
