Vantage Credit Union is kicking off its annual school supply drive now through August 31 to benefit local students through the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition and KidSmart.
Both organizations stock stores with school supplies for students. The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition offers reduced rate and free supplies to foster families. KidSmart gets new school supplies into the hands of teachers who can assist students in need living in the great St. Louis area.
Donations of new, unused school supplies can be dropped off at any of Vantage Credit Union’s 14 locations. If shopping for new school supplies is not in your schedule, spare change can be donated in collection jars at each branch. Credit union employees will use spare change to purchase new school supplies.
Any school supplies donated to the credit union will go directly to the stores, where parents and teachers can then pick them up for students. Visit our website at www.vcu.com for further details about the credit union’s annual Tools For Learning school supply drive.
