School supply drive

TICONDEROGA — For the fourth consecutive year, Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union (TFCU) will host its Back to School Supply Drive for area students. From now through Sept. 3, the Credit Union will collect school-supply donations at each of its three branches and two ATM locations.

Collected supplies will be given to 10 area schools to distribute to students as they see fit. Suggested items include No. 2 pencils, crayons, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, pens, washable glue sticks, boxes of tissue and anti-bacterial wipes or hand-sanitizers. Items such as backpacks, binders, highlighters and calculators are also greatly appreciated.

Donations of cash or gift cards to office-supply stores or retail vendors are also welcome and will be used by the Credit Union to purchase supplies from school-issued lists. Visit TFCU’s website, or contact any branch at 585-6725 with questions.
