BEND, OR -- Mid Oregon Credit Union is banking on the generosity of visitors to the Deschutes County Fair, Friday. They'll collect school supplies at the Mid Oregon booth. Kyle Frick, with the credit union, says it's part of their month-long effort to help the Family Access Network (also known as "FAN") in local schools, "That's a great group of people that really do reach out to people that are in need."

 

Donations can also be made at any Mid Oregon Credit Union branch through the end of August, "We collect a bunch of different school supplies; they go to the communities were we collect them," Frick tells KBND News. They'll take everything from traditional items, like pens to binders, to more tech-related supplies, "More recently it's been backpacks and calculators and earbuds - so, a lot of kids now in schools are using iPads and so they can do their lessons with their iPads, but they can listen to that through their earbuds."

 

On Wednesday, a Redmond bus driver donated 140 backpacks filled with supplies and hygiene kits to the Redmond branch, to kick off the effort:
