School supplies are an important part of starting school and you would be shocked at how many families don't have the money to provide their children with school supplies.  So many kids are forced to start the school year without pencils, crayons, folders, backpacks, etc.  The things they need for school.

We don't think any child should have to start school without the basic school supplies.  That's why we need your help.  We are asking that when you go shopping for school supplies please pick up some extra supplies.  Items such as pencils, glue, crayons, folders, spiral notebooks, etc.  Once you have the supplies you can drop them off at any of the Education Credit Unions locations in Amarillo, Canyon and Bushland.

Locations include:

I-40 Branch~ 4400 West I-40 79106

Hillside Branch~6201 Hillside 79109

Plum Creek Branch~5500 Plum Creek Drive 79124

45th & Virginia Branch~3615 SW 45th Ave 79109

Canyon Branch~2100 4th Ave 79015

Bushland Branch~1801 S FM 2381

Just drop them in the High Plains Food Bank barrels located at each branch.  You have until August 14th to donate items.

The High Plains Food Bank Kid's Cafe will distribute those donated items to those kids and families that need school supplies.
