As of July 2013, Indiana Members Credit Union and Foundation, along with extremely generous members, have raised enough funds for their school supply campaign to provide a total of 4,000 backpacks and school supplies to underprivileged children.  This total is a result of selling candy at their Central Indiana Branches, as well as donations from their annual “Bowl-A-Thon” employee fundraising event, the Indiana Members Foundation Golf Outing, and their annual IMCU Yard Sale.  To date, enough funds have been raised for IMCU to donate more than 80,000 supplies.  

Ron Collier, President and CEO of Indiana Members Credit Union stated, “Indiana Members Credit Union is excited to partner with Indy BackPack Attack for our largest public backpack distribution event.  We’ve expanded our distribution event this year to include multiple IMCU locations throughout Central Indiana in an effort to assist more children around the city.  Everyone at IMCU including employees, board members and membership have gone above and beyond to assist in fundraising efforts to support our Foundation so we are able to once again provide our youth with the essential school supplies needed to begin their school year.  I’m so proud of those associated with IMCU that continually support these worthwhile efforts.” All 25 IMCU branches in Central Indiana served as public collection sites for the school supply drive, with bins in their branch lobbies during branch hours, June 24th through July 19th

It’s reported that 88% percent of the families in the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) need help with basic school supplies.  IMCU has partnered with programs in Marion and surrounding counties to provide underprivileged children the supplies they need to start the school year.  The programs include Indy BackPack Attack, Hendricks County BackPack Attack, Johnson County FastTrack Program, Franklin Township FastTrack, Carmel Clay Township Trustee, Noblesville Trustee, Muncie Mission, BackPack Attack through Salvation Army, Westfield “Open Doors Project”, Warren Township Common Goal and Zionsville Community Schools.
