Credit union sponsors Project Backpack

CRYSTAL LAKE – As the school year approaches, many families may be faced with economic pressures when buying school supplies. Many parents are unable to provide their children with basic school supplies.

Corporate America Family Credit Union helps alleviate some financial tension local families are faced with during the school year through a school supply drive called “Project Backpack.”

“Helping families by providing them with basic school supplies is so rewarding” said Krista Oehlberg, branch manager of Corporate America Family Credit Union in Crystal Lake. “Feedback from children and parents receiving the supplies over these past years has been such a moving, positive experience for our staff and members.”

Donations for “Project Backpack” can be dropped off at the Corporate America Family Credit Union’s branch at 625 Cog Circle, Unit 200 through Aug. 17. For more information, visit www.cafcu.org/backpack or call 800-359-1939.
