Generations FCU and KENS 5 Collects More Than 20,000 School Supplies

Generation FCU Donations Bills Elves

As kids head back to school today, children under the care of Child Protective Services will have a little extra help, thanks to Generations Federal Credit Union and San Antonio CBS affiliate KENS 5. Generations is a sponsor of KENS 5’s annual Bill’s Elves School Supply Drive, which collects school supplies for the more than 7,000 children.

This year the event was held from August 3–7, and event coordinators accepted more than 20,000 supplies for the children.

“This is the fourth year that Generations has partnered with KENS 5 to sponsor this event,” said Steve Schipull, president and CEO of Generations Federal Credit Union, "and it’s been rewarding to watch the school supply drive grow significantly year after year. It is a testament to the San Antonio community and how we go out of our way to take care of each other."

The school supplies were delivered to CPS offices on August 11, and trucks and storage units were unloaded live during the afternoon newscasts. KENS 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Taylor serves as the host of this annual event.

 

Generations FCU Donations Display

Generations FCU and CPS volunteers collected supplies in front of the studio during the collection week, and individuals could also make donations through a Generations-hosted website. Along with Corner Stores, the credit union also accepted donations at their locations during the drive.

“With the busy schedules we all lead, especially when it’s time to go back to school, it’s hard to find any free time," Schipull said. "Generations and Corner Store tried to make it as easy as possible to contribute to this very worthy cause. By opening up our locations and setting up the online donation process, it makes it very simple for the community to step up and make a difference in the lives of these children.”
