2015 United Heritage School Supply Drive

The annual United Heritage School Supply Drive is now underway!
United Heritage wants to ensure children who are not able to purchase their own school supplies get what they need before their first day of school. For this reason, our employees participate in an annual school supply drive for children and families in need. This year we're accepting donations from UHCU members as well! In 2014, UHCU employees collected more than 1,560 school supplies valued at over $1,780 for children and families who needed them. We want to collect even more items this year with your help. The benefitting organizations of the United Heritage School Supply Drive are Big Brothers Big Sisters in Austin and PATH (People Attempting to Help) in Tyler. Students in Grades 6-12 will receive supplies from the United Heritage School Supply Drive.
We appreciate all who support the People Helping People philosophy of United Heritage Credit Union.

How to Donate

Bring your school supplies to any full-service United Heritage branch location and place them in the Team United Heritage collection bins that will be stationed in the lobbies through Friday, July 24, 2015.
