Through July 30th, California Credit Union invites community members to make a difference in a student's life by dropping off a school backpack to any branch location in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. A complete list of California Credit Union locations is available here.

Donated backpacks should be new and appropriate for elementary/middle school students. The credit union will fill all donated backpacks with essential school supplies for distribution to students in need through the Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club in time for the fall school year.

"We're asking our community to join with us in helping every student start the school year ready to learn and thrive. Many families in our community are challenged to provide new back-to-school backpacks, and together we can make a difference in a child's life and academic success," said California Credit Union CEO Steve O'Connell. "Every backpack brought to one of our branches will be filled with school supplies and given to local students so they can begin the school year with the tools they need to succeed."
