California Credit Union, which has a branch at River Oaks Shopping Center in Valencia, launched a school supplies drive to help local students start the school year ready to learn in partnership with NBC4 and Telemundo 52’s Supporting Our Schools back-to-school donation drive.
Through Monday, July 31, California Credit Union invites community members to make a difference in a student’s life by dropping off new school supplies at any branch location in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. A complete list of California Credit Union locations is available [here]. All supplies will be distributed to students at a special community event at the Weingart East Los Angeles YMCA Saturday, Aug. 5.
The Valencia branch of California Credit Union at River Oaks Shopping Center is located at 24343 Magic Mountain Pkwy. The phone number is (800) 334-8788.
“We’re asking our community to join with us in helping every student start the school year ready to learn and thrive. Many families in our community are challenged to provide essential school supplies, and together we can make a difference in a child’s life and academic success,” said Steve O’Connell, California Credit Union CEO . “All supplies brought to our branches will be given to local students so they can begin the school year with the tools they need to succeed.”
School supplies needed include:
| – Backpacks
| – Notebooks
| – Pens, pencils, markers, and crayons
| – Binders/folders
| – Paper/graph paper
| – Rulers, erasers, glue sticks, etc.

NBC4 / KNBC and Telemundo 52 / KVEA’s Supporting Our Schools or Apoyando a Nuestras Escuelas back-to-school donation drive helps students and teachers get the supplies they need to succeed in the new academic school year. Between July 10 and July 31, viewers and the general public are invited to join the stations by making a donation to fund a local classroom project via the education nonprofit DonorsChoose.
