Helping Students Start the Year with Free School Supplies

schoolRallied by its CU Involved committee, MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) employees came through for local students. Employees donated school supplies for districts in Lansing and Oakland County during its annual drive.

Items donated by the Greater Lansing branches:

  • 100 packs of pens and pencils
  • 100 folders
  • 100 notebook sticks
  • 50 boxes of markers and crayons
  • 25 boxes of scissors
  • 10 containers of Clorox
  • 2 cases of bottled water

Items donated by Oakland County branches:

  • 330 pencils
  • 50 notebooks
  • 50 glue sticks
  • 15 erasers
  • 10 pairs of scissors
  • 10 boxes of markers
  • 2 cases of water

“This school supply collection was driven by our CU Involved committee, composed internally of employee volunteers,” said Silvia Dimma, MSUFCU’s chief human resources officer. “The generosity our employees show for youth in need in our communities is gratifying to see. Time and time again they help others in any way they can.”

“When families are struggling to make ends meet, school supplies are the last thing on their list even though they’re needed,” said Brian Philson, president/CEO of Highfields. “Many teachers often try to offset the cost by providing supplies out of their own pockets just so students don’t fall behind. Thanks to [MSUFCU], Highfields’ clients have one less thing to worry about.”
