Marcy Eichen, Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union Port Henry branch manager, delivers school supplies to pre-kindergarten students at Moriah Central School.
Area students got a boost to begin the academic year from the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union.
“Thank you to everyone who donated school supplies to the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union second annual supplies drive in August,” said Kate Shoemaker, TFCU marketing coordinator. “Hundreds of supplies and several monetary donations were collected during the month to help make sure that local students started the school year off ready to learn.”
The supplies were collected at Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union branches in Ticonderoga, Port Henry and Elizabethtown and at ATM locations at the International Paper Ticonderoga mill and Schroon Lake Grand Union Family Market. All donations were distributed to local students and schools in need.
Collected were glue sticks, notebooks, binders and loose leaf paper, boxes of crayons, rulers, pencil boxes, packs of colored pencils, packages of erasers and white-out, backpacks, construction paper and dozens of packages of pens, pencils, markers and highlighters, scissors, calculators and more.
“TFCU wishes to thank all the community members supporting their second annual supplies drive,” Shoemaker said. “Without their support, it could not be the successful event that it has become.”
