Project Backpack

For 16 years we have been supporting Project Backpack, an annual school supply drive that helps parents, students and teachers prepare for the school year. By collecting items like crayons, scissors, markers, pencils, rulers and backpacks, we've been able to help local communities that don't have enough basic classroom tools. 

Project Backpack Partners with eStatements! 

We will be donating a school supply item for every member that enrolls in eStatements between July 29 and August 16, 2019!* Click here to find out more about eStatements and how to enroll.

From July 29 through August 16, 2019 we will be collecting school supplies at local branches. There are many items that are badly needed in areas that don't get enough support. Click here to find a branch near you where you can drop them off.
