Many children look forward to arriving on the first day of school with new notebooks, backpacks and pencil boxes, but it's a different story for children whose families cannot afford these items. To meet this community need, Apple Federal Credit Union is conducting its annual back to school supply drives for area students and WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Apple Federal Credit Union’s Collect for Kids program is an exceptional way to support our local students. Each fall, thousands of children start the school year without the basic school supplies they need to succeed academically. Collect for Kids is a program focused on providing those critical supplies to children who are "most in need", allowing them to focus on their studies and build self-esteem.
