The weather is hot, students are out of class and parents are trying to decide where to go on the last minute vacations. While summer may be here in full swing, August will arrive sooner than we know, and with it comes back-to-school preparation. For the second year in a row, FCU is holding its School Supply Drive, designed to support local teachers and students. We feel it’s a smart idea to start a little early and make sure we collect as much as we can for those in need!
This year, we will be sponsoring several charities from the various counties he have branches in. Our Gainesville branches will be donating to the Alachua County School Board’s “Tools for Schools” program, our Ocala branches will be donating to Marion County’s “Operation: Stuff the Bus” and our Lake City and Starke branches will be donating to our sponsored schools in Bradford and Columbia County.
All sorts of donations are needed, from art supplies, to office supplies, to standard tools like backpacks and calculators. For a more thorough list, please visit FCU’s School Supply Drive Facebook Tab. Donations will be accepted now through August 8, 2013. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact Marketing@flcu.org.
