Maui County Federal Credit Union will be holding a school supply and backpack drive at its Lahaina and Wailuku branches through July 15.
The event will support the Maui County Salvation Army’s annual effort to provide backpacks full of school supplies to children in need.
Backpacks and school supplies can be dropped off at the Lahaina branch located at 270 Lahainaluna Rd. from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or at the Wailuku branch located at 1888 Wili Pa Loop from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Donations for the adoption of a backpack are also accepted.
“We are proud to be able to partner with the Salvation Army for the fifth year in an effort to help our keiki return to school ready to succeed. Donating school supplies for children in need will allow students to focus on the important work of learning,” said Maui County Federal Credit Union President and CEO Gary Fukuroku.
