Summer has just begun, but Vantage Credit Union (Bridgeton, Mo.) is already thinking about the new school year which is right around the corner. In an effort to help those less fortunate, all Vantage locations will be collecting new school supplies through Aug. 31, 2013 to benefit the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition and KidSmart, an educational supply store providing teachers with free school supplies for students in area classrooms.
Both stock their stores for back to school. 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 in your schedule, 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.
