2016 United Heritage School Supply Drive

The annual United Heritage School Supply Drive has begun! United Heritage Credit Union wants to ensure children who are not able to purchase their own school supplies get what they need before the first day of school, which is why the Credit Union hosts a school supply drive every year.

In 2015, UHCU employees and members collected more than 1,300 school supplies. We want to collect even more items this year -- and we need your help!

Along with members, UHCU employees are collecting school supplies to benefit 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. Find out how and where to donate school supplies below.
We appreciate all who support the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People."

How to Donate

Bring your school supplies to any full-service United Heritage branch location and place them in the collection bins that are stationed in the lobbies through Friday, July 22, 2016.
