With the new school year quickly approaching, American Eagle Financial Credit Union (AEFCU) is partnering with the United Way for their annual “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive.
Throughout August, all American Eagle branches will be collecting school supplies from their members, employees and the general public as they try to surpass last year’s collection of 20,000 items. All donated items will be used by the United Way to supply school classrooms for the 2022-23 school year.
“American Eagle is a strong advocate for our local schools and communities, and we’re excited to partner with the United Way to ensure students and educators have what they need for a successful and fun school year,” said Howard Brady, President & CEO of American Eagle.
“Our team visits schools regularly to help teach financial literacy to young people, and we have learned firsthand from teachers how much of their personal income they spend on school supplies for their students,” added Brady. “It’s our hope this drive will make a big impact—and so we encourage everyone to help out our educators and students by dropping off needed school supplies at one of our branch locations.”
Donation boxes marked with the “Stuff the Bus” logo will be available in all American Eagle branches until the end of August. Suggested donation items include crayons, erasers, glue sticks, highlighters, markers, pens, #2 pencils, pocket folders, sketchbooks and spiral notebooks.
