Operation School Supplies encourages participation

Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union (MMFCU) is helping local students go back to school supplied for success this fall.

Operation School Supplies is geared toward providing children with necessary school supplies for the upcoming year. The campaign runs now through September 30.

The community is encouraged to participate by donating crayons, notebooks, glue sticks, backpacks, rulers and other school supplies to any of MMFCU's seven full-service branches during regular lobby hours. Cash donations are also accepted.

MMFCU staff volunteers will then use the funds to purchase supplies from area businesses.

All supplies donated will be given to local schools in each branch city for students who need help obtaining all their supplies.

MMFCU is a member-owned financial cooperative serving central Minnesota. The credit union has full-service offices in Alexandria, Baxter, Brainerd, Little Falls, Crosby, Pequot lakes and Staples, as well as a drive-through branch in Baxter.
