These are children who have seen a down side of life that no child should have to see. We really wanted to step up to the plate and make a difference in their lives
(PRWEB) August 08, 2012
Generations Federal Credit Union has partnered with KENS 5 and Jon Wayne Heating and Air Conditioning as part of the Bill’s Elves School Supply Drive. The annual event encourages the San Antonio community to donate school supplies for more than 6,000 local children who are under the care of Child Protective Services. KENS 5 Weatherman Bill Taylor serves as the host of this annual event.
The community can donate in a variety of ways, including:
1) Drop School Supplies off at the KENS 5 studios from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. anytime during the week of August 6 through August 10
2) Donate online at http://www.mygenfcu.org/billselves
3) Bring school supplies into any Generations Federal Credit Union branch
4) Contact Jon Wayne to pick up supplies
“As we gear up for back to school, there are many worthy school supply drives going on around San Antonio,” said Ashley Harris, associate vice president of corporate communications for Generations Federal Credit union. “But I think it’s important to remember that these children are under the care of Child Protective Services, so they have seen a downside of life that no child should have to see. We really wanted to step up to the plate and make a difference in their lives.”
The school supplies will be delivered to the CPS offices during the week of August 13.
