North Island Credit Union has launched a school backpack drive to benefit local elementary and middle school students in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.

Through July 23, North Island Credit Union is inviting community members to make a difference in a student’s life by dropping off a school backpack at any branch in San Diego County. A complete list of North Island Credit Union locations is available here.

Donated backpacks must be new and suitable for elementary/middle school students. The credit union will fill all donated backpacks with essential school supplies. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego will distribute the stuffed backpacks to Club kids in need in time for the fall school year.

“We are asking our community to join us in helping every student start the school year ready to learn and thrive. Many families in our community are called upon to provide new back to school backpacks and together we can make a difference in a child’s life and academic success,” said North Island Credit Union CEO Steve O’Connell. “Every backpack we bring to one of our branches will be filled with school supplies and given to local students so they can start the school year with the tools they need to succeed.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego changes lives through quality youth programs and mentoring in a safe, accessible and fun environment. The Clubs serve children ages 5-18 at 20 community-based locations across the province, making a difference in the lives of San Diego’s future leaders – today’s youth. Through the Back 2 School Drive, its members receive everything they need to start the school year off right.
