Backpack Drive is Back!
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
• 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!
