Donations help support students in the new school year, as Mid Oregon’s Supplies 4 Schools completed.
Significant Financial and Supply Donations
With the support of our members and the community, Mid Oregon Credit Union collected over $2,200 and several bins of school supplies for local students during its annual Supplies 4 Schools fundraiser.
Throughout the month of August, we collected school supplies and cash donations. Each of our seven branch locations in Bend, La Pine, Madras, Redmond, Prineville, and Sisters offered a bin for supply drop off, and took financial donations in person and digitally. All donations stay in the local communities where they were received.
Long Term Effort Supporting Schools and Students
“For almost two decades, Mid Oregon has helped Central Oregon K-12 students. It helps start the school year off right by providing them with the supplies they need to be successful the moment they walk into their classroom,” says Kyle Frick, VP of Marketing and Community Relations for Mid Oregon Credit Union.
Getting to the Students Who Need It Most
Mid Oregon partners with Family Access Network (FAN) to distribute supplies to students in Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson Counties. Those students lack the necessities to succeed at school. FAN offers assistance, possibility, and hope to Central Oregon families in need. They connect them with crucial resources to help those children flourish in school and life. FAN is unique to Central Oregon, located in nearly all public schools across Central Oregon. Working through a dedicated FAN advocate, a child or parent is connected to essential services such as food, shelter, heating, health care, clothing, and more.
“FAN supported over 1,550 children with school supplies last year,” said Robyn Harmon, FAN Project Manager. “With the help from Mid Oregon’s Supplies 4 Schools donations, we will ensure each student has the tools they need to be ready to learn.”
