Burlington, VT - Vermont Federal Credit Union partnered with NBC5 for the "Class Act" school supplies drive, which collected much needed school supplies in support of Vermont communities, students and teachers.
Vermont Federal collected back-to-school items at all of its seven branches and hosted the first Stuff the Bus event at its newest branch in Essex. Donations included writing supplies (pencils, pens, highlighters, etc), arts and craft supplies (scissors, crayons, glue sticks, etc), and other school gear (lunch boxes, backpacks, calculators, etc).
"We are thrilled with the results of the school supply drive," said Jean Giard, CEO. "I am very proud that our employees, members and Vermonters can make a difference for many individuals in our communities by helping kids get off to a great start as they begin the new school year."
