BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- With the support of its members and the community, Mid Oregon Credit Union collected $2,261 and numerous overflowing bins of school supplies for local students during its annual Supplies 4 Schools fundraiser.
During the month of August, Mid Oregon accepted school supplies and cash donations at its seven branch locations in Bend, La Pine, Madras, Redmond, Prineville, and Sisters. All donations remain in the local communities where they were received.
“For over two decades, Mid Oregon has helped Central Oregon K-12 students start the school year off right by providing them with the supplies they need to be successful the moment they walk into their classroom,” says Kyle Frick, VP of Marketing and Community Relations for Mid Oregon Credit Union.
Mid Oregon partners with Family Access Network (FAN) to distribute supplies to students in Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson Counties who lack the necessities to succeed at school.
“FAN supported over 1,400 children with school supplies last year,” said Robyn Harmon, FAN Project Manager. “With the help from Mid Oregon’s Supplies 4 Schools donations, we will ensure each student has the tools they need to be ready to learn.”
