It’s all part of the “Backpacks for Back-to-School” campaign.
You can make donations at any Oregon Community Credit Union or St. Vincent de Paul stores in Eugene and Springfield.
Organizers said the donations received so far have been great but they still need help. They’re asking for supplies or cash donations.
“People have been very generous so far but there’s a growing need every year. We see more and more kids who need help with back to school supplies so we need more help. We need more donations of money, and we need more donations of supplies,” said Cherie Kistner, spokesperson for Oregon Community Credit Union.
They’re collecting donations until the end of this month.
