It is time once again for the annual Veritas Funding backpack drive! Over 13 years ago, Veritas Funding started an annual backpack drive to help local school children. For the past seven 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. With over 90% of students at Stansbury receiving free or reduced lunches, many families would not be able to provide these essential supplies for their children otherwise.
This year, we plan to collect and provide over 1,000 backpacks, ready to be packed full on the first day of school with the school supplies needed for the year. We also plan to continue to donate supplies to teachers as part of our efforts.
We welcome any contributions to help students at Stansbury Elementary. As always, we welcome all monetary and material donations at our office, and new this year: you can Venmo us your donation (@VeritasFundingUH) or shop from our Amazon Wishlist (http://a.co/05pEntn), which ships directly to our office.
All donations can be dropped off at: 7730 S Union Park Ave #200, Midvale, UT 84047. The drive runs August 1st – 17th. You can even call your Union Heights loan officer to pick up supplies at your location. Veritas Funding will MATCH every stuffed, donated backpack!
