Vantage Partners with Local Organization for Back to School Supply Drive

Vantage Credit Union is pleased to announce that we worked with Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition (FAACC) to provide backpacks and school supplies to hundreds of children impacted by foster care.

During FAACC’s Back to School Bonanza on Saturday, August 4, they aimed to give backpacks filled with supplies to 300 children. With a donation of over $1,000 from Vantage, FAACC blew away its previous goal and ended up supplying over 650 children.

“We’re so grateful to Vantage Credit Union,” said Melanie Scheetz, Executive Director of FAACC. “We really appreciate our 20-year partnership and the work that Vantage has done to get these kids equipped to go back to school. Being in foster care can be tough, and the work we do can help make it easier for the kids.”
