It is time for the annual Veritas backpack drive!  Twelve years ago, Veritas Funding started an annual backpack drive to help local school children.  For the past six years, the Union Heights branch has made it a goal to supply every student at Stansbury Elementary in West Valley City with a backpack full of school supplies.  That means assembling over one thousand backpacks of school supplies each school year.  We have also been able to donate teacher school supplies. 

Many families would not be able to provide these supplies for their children otherwise.  Almost one hundred percent of students at Stansbury receive free or reduced lunches. 

We welcome any contributions to help students at Stansbury Elementary.  Cash donations are accepted, as are school supply donations.  Here is a list of the most needed school supplies:

Backpacks

No.2 pencils

Colored pencils

Crayola markers

Crayons (16 or 24 pack)

Glue or glue sticks

Spiral notebooks(wide-ruled)

Pencil pouches

Rulers

Safety scissors 

All donations can be dropped off at: 7730 S Union Park Ave #200, Midvale, UT 84047. The drive runs August 1st – 17th. Or call your Union Heights loan officer to pick up supplies at your location.  Veritas Funding will match EVERY stuffed, donated backpack!
