IMCU provides 4,000 backpacks to students

Indiana Members Credit Union (IMCU) and its members hosted a school supply campaign and provided 4,000 backpacks and school supplies to underprivileged children.

Enough funds were raised for IMCU to donate more than 80,000 supplies, which included backpacks, erasers, pencils, calculators, crayons, markers, spiral notebooks, pens, pencil sharpeners, rulers, notebook paper, scissors, pocket folders, colored pencils, glue sticks, and composition notebooks.

IMCU employees volunteered their time to fill the backpacks at a “Stuffing Party” in July at the company headquarters at 5103 Madison Ave., Indianapolis.

IMCU, in partnership with Indy BackPack Attack, disbursed the backpacks filled with school supplies, during public distribution events July 27 at 17 IMCU locations and Arsenal Technical High School. Children who were accompanied by an adult were able to receive a free backpack.

IMCU has partnered with programs in Marion and surrounding counties to provide underprivileged children with the supplies they need to start the school year. The programs included Indy BackPack Attack, Hendricks County BackPack Attack, Johnson County FastTrack Program, Franklin Township FastTrack, Carmel Clay Township Trustee, Noblesville Trustee, Muncie Mission, Westfield “Open Doors Project”, Warren Township Common Goal, and Zionsville Community School Corporation.

“It’s remarkable to have the support of IMCU members, employees, board of directors, community members and volunteers year after year for this worthwhile cause,” IMCU CEO Ron Collier said in a press release. “I’m proud of our organization and the community for being a part of this initiative and assisting to provide the pertinent tools for students to be successful in their education. IMCU was founded in education on the campus of IUPUI, and on the principles of helping others succeed. We are committed to giving back to the communities in which we serve and I would like to thank everyone for their generous support. There is a great need which can be met with the support of local businesses and we encourage others to help us in this effort to aid our children with their education.”
