Mid Oregon Launches Annual Supplies 4 Schools Fundraiser
August 9, 2022
Based in Bend, Oregon, Mid Oregon Credit Union has kicked off its annual Supplies 4 Schools drive in partnership with Family Access Network. For almost two decades, Mid Oregon has been helping Central Oregon K-12 students get a head start on the school year with the supplies and tools they need to be successful.
Throughout the month of August, Mid Oregon is collecting school supplies and cash donations from members and the community at its seven branch locations in Bend, La Pine, Madras, Redmond, Prineville, and Sisters. A new feature this year allows members and non-members to make online donations using their debit or credit cards by visiting the Supplies 4 Schools donation page here.
“Some children and families do not have the resources for school supplies they need to be equipped for the learning process,” said Kyle Frick, VP of marketing and community relations for the credit union. “We look forward to facilitating our members and the community giving generously to this cause.”
Supplies 4 Schools donations and funds stay in the local communities where they are collected. Mid Oregon partners with Family Access Network and school districts to distribute supplies to students in Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson Counties who lack the necessities to succeed at school.
Most-needed items for the 2022-23 school year include water bottles, scissors (all sizes), watercolor paint sets, mechanical pencils, 2” and 3” binders, backpacks (all ages), pencil boxes and lined and graph composition notebooks.
