Backpack Drive is Back!


Back to school drive

It’s back and in full swing. We’re excited to continue our participation in Arizona Helping Hand’s back to school initiative to provide new backpacks with grade-appropriate school supplies to children in foster care.

Here’s how you can help:

Make a Financial Donation
A $35 donation provides a backpack filled with school supplies for a child in foster care.

Donate a Backpack and/or Supplies
Each backpack given out by Arizona Helping Hands includes all supplies children need to start the school year off right!

Supplies needed include:
• Pencil pouches
• Pencil sharpeners and erasers
• #2 pencils
• Black and red ballpoint pens
• Highlighters
• Glue sticks
• 1-inch 3-ring binders, 5-tab dividers, and filler paper
• Spiral and composition notebooks
• 2 pocket folders
• Washable markers
• 3-inch x 3-inch post-its
• Lunch tote

Bring your donation to any of RBAZ’s three locations in Phoenix, Gilbert, or Scottsdale. Thanks to the bank’s Culture Club for organizing the drive.

RBAZ employees who donate $35 earn a jeans day every Friday in July!
