Elizabethtown For the third consecutive year, Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union (TFCU) will host its Back to School Supply Drive for area students.
From July 30 through Aug. 31, the credit union will collect donations of school supplies through collection bins in all branches and ATM locations to benefit students in these areas.
“We are truly inspired by the generosity of our local people and businesses,” said Shawn Hayes, President and CEO of Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union. “We are pleased to play a role in meeting an important need in our area,” he continued.
All supplies will be distributed by the Credit Union to the schools which will be able to direct the resources where they are needed most. Suggested items include; #2 pencils, crayons, spiral notebooks, washable glue sticks, boxes of tissue, anti-bacterial wipes or hand-sanitizer. Items such as backpacks, binders and calculators are also greatly appreciated. Donations or gift cards to office supply stores or retail vendors are also welcomed and will be used by the Credit Union to purchase supplies from school-issued lists.
