With the “back to school” season upon us, SDCCU has partnered with Channel 933 and the San Diego County Office of Education to collect school supplies for local students. Through Aug. 21, the SDCCU School Bus will be on tour with Channel 933, making various stops to collect supplies. The community is also encouraged to drop off supplies at any one of SDCCU’s 38 convenient locations.
“Through SDCCU Classroom Heroes, our organization is proud to support many programs that enhance the lives of teachers and students. SDCCU wanted to further its support of local schools by providing students with basic supplies to help better prepare them to succeed in the classroom. SDCCU Stuff the Bus is a great way to bring the entire community together to help make a big difference in the lives of our future generations,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.
The San Diego County Office of Education has identified several district/schools throughout the county where there is an additional need for supplies, such as new pencils, pens, notebooks, calculators and paperclips. The supplies donated to SDCCU Stuff the Bus will be given directly to districts to divide among schools.
The SDCCU School Bus will be parked at Westfield Mission Valley Mall on Aug. 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Cox Communication’s annual Back to School event, which features a variety of vendors positioned to help parents and children prepare for the upcoming school year.
