“At the heart of The Summit’s culture is supporting the communities that we serve,” said Twanda Christensen, vice president of marketing and community engagement. “We know that the cost of school supplies rises every year, making it difficult for some families to fully provide their children with the essentials they need for the school year. We want to support our teachers and students and get them off to a great start for the 2022-23 school year.”
The Summit school supply drive will conclude Aug. 23 to give the credit union time to distribute items to beneficiaries before the start of the school year. For a full list of supplies needed, visit your nearest branch of The Summit.
