UNITED BANK & TRUST SPONSORS ITS SEVENTH ANNUAL SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE FOR HOMELESS AND DISADVANTAGED YOUTH
ANN ARBOR, MI – In collaboration with the our local ISD homeless youth education programs, United Bank & Trust is pleased to begin its seventh annual "Tools for Schools" campaign — a community-wide collection drive of school supplies for homeless and disadvantaged youth in grades K-12. It is estimated that over 800 homeless and displaced children will be enrolled throughout Lenawee and Washtenaw Counties, as well as Brighton and Dundee area schools this fall. This campaign ensures that none of the children in the communities we serve will go without supplies during the school year.
"Our Tools for Schools campaign gives United and our local communities the opportunity to come together and support homeless and disadvantaged youth," said Todd Clark, chief banking officer. "Receiving a quality education is vital to the future success of all children. We hope the school supplies donated through this program will help provide some of the needed tools for those displaced youth who struggle to stay afloat."
Merchandise donations can be dropped off at any United Bank & Trust office during regular business hours from July 30 through August 31. Cash donations in any amount can be made at United banking offices. These monetary funds will be used to purchase higher-priced items that are short-in-supply, but greatly needed. Please visit United’s website at www.ubat.com for a list of needed supplies.
