ABCO FCU Donates Backpacks, School Supplies to Center for Family Services
Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

 

CAMDEN-Yesterday ABCO Federal Credit Union and its members donated over 120 backpacks and hundreds of school supplies to the Center for Family Service's Operation Backpack.

Every year Center For Family Services, a human service non-profit based in Camden, hosts Operation Backpack to provide children throughout South Jersey with the tools to start the school year. ABCO donated 100 backpacks. School supply and backpack donations were also made by ABCO employees and members. Items collected included notebooks, pencils, folders, rulers, calculators, and other school essentials.

"Education is the foundation for success," said Julia Bernd, Marketing Coordinator at ABCO. "No child should be deprived of these basic items."

Yesterday, a team of volunteers from ABCO helped stuff backpacks with items needed according to the recipient's age and gender.

Center For Family Service's distributed close to 3,000 backpacks filled with school supplies this year.
