Vantage Credit Union will be collecting new school supplies through August 31 to benefit the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition and KidSmart, an educational supply store providing teachers with free school supplies for students in area classrooms.
The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition offers reduced rate supplies to students. The KidSmart Store gets new school supplies into the hands of teachers who can assist students in need living in the greater St. Louis area.
Donations of new, unused school supplies can be dropped off at any Vantage location. If shopping for new school supplies is not possible, spare change can be donated in collection jars at each location. (Credit union employees will use the spare change to purchase new school supplies for the drive.)
