Member One Federal Credit Union hosts Pens, Paper, & Promise school supply drive

ROANOKE, VA (August 11, 2016) — Member One Federal Credit Union, a full-service credit union based in Roanoke, VA, assisted two local schools in Member One’s annual Pens, Paper, & Promise school supply drive.

Member One employees donated 22 boxes worth of school supplies, and donations were delivered to two Roanoke City Schools, Fallon Park Elementary School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School.

“Member One’s employees are so loyal to the communities we serve. The items we donated to local schools on behalf of our employees will impact so many local school children and prepare them for the upcoming school year,” Andrea Milliron, VP, Community/Business Development at Member One said.

Increasing costs for school supplies often strain family budgets. According to a 2014 report by the National Retail Federation, parents can expect to pay an average of $101.18 per child on school supplies each year.

Nicole Mitchem, principal at Fallon Park Elementary acknowledges that these items are critical to prepare children for the school year and costs are often a financial burden on families.

“Member One’s generosity helps to ensure students have a successful start to the upcoming school year,” Mitchem said.
