In Partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego
Credit Union Branches Accepting Donations of New Backpacks for Elementary and Middle School Students
San Diego, CA – July, 2022 – North Island Credit Union has launched a school backpack drive to benefit local elementary and middle school students in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.
Through July 23rd, North Island 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 San Diego County. A complete list of North Island 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. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego will distribute the stuffed backpacks to Club kids in need 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 North Island 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.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego changes lives through quality youth programs and guidance in a safe, affordable and fun environment. The Clubs serve kids ages 5-18 at 20 community-based sites countywide, making a difference in the lives of San Diego’s future leaders – today’s youth. Through its Back 2 School Drive, its members receive all the basic necessities to start the school year off right.
