Livonia, MI (August 22, 2012) – Co-op Services recently collected more than 60 new backpacks filled with school supplies. These were part of an area wide donation drive held in partnership with Volunteers of America Michigan, 96.3 WDVD and Fox 2 Detroit.  Their combined efforts help ensure many more students across Michigan will have the supplies they need to succeed during the coming school year.

“We have our credit union members and team members to thank for making our fourth annual Backpack Drive an outstanding success,” said Jeremy Cybulski, youth and community development coordinator for Co-op Services Credit Union.  “We also received a generous donation from the Downriver Wanderers Classic Car Club that allowed us to purchase extra backpacks and supplies.”

During July and August, Co-op Services collected new backpacks, folders, notebooks, pens, scissors, pencils and other supplies at donation boxes in the credit union’s branch offices.  The backpacks will be distributed through Volunteers of America Michigan to students of low-income families.

Headquartered in Livonia, Co-op Services Credit Union has more than 52,000 members and maintains eight full-service branch offices in the Detroit metro area.  Members also have access to more than 3,000 shared branches and 28,000 ATMs nationwide.  For more information about Co-op Services, visit the credit union web site at or call 800.321.8570.
