Jackson Area Backpack Giveaway on Tap for July 28

As part of their continuing efforts to support students, families, local schools, and communities, Community Choice Credit Union will once again host backpack giveaways at eight of their 23 member centers in July and August.

The Jackson Member Center giveaway is scheduled for 5 to 7:30 p.m. on July 28. The Jackson Member Center is located at 1425 Parnall Road. There will be 500 backpacks filled with school supplies and other learning essentials available to families, while supplies last. There is a limit of one backpack per child; children must be present to receive their backpack.

To accommodate everyone’s health needs, these will be drive-up events. The credit union asks that everyone remain in their car.

“We held drive-up events last year, and they worked out great. We’ll do it again this year, and we’ll get local businesses involved to make it a true community event,” said Jeremy Cybulski, Community Engagement Manager at Community Choice. “These types of events are so important to us. We get to be out in our communities, help families, and just have a good time by Giving Big and Giving Back.”

Radio station K105 will be on-site broadcasting, and Tiki Sam’s will provide the food. This is sure to be an enjoyable community event; membership is not required. The credit union would like to give special thanks to PC Solutions and the Jackson Rotary for signing on as business sponsors for the event.

such a pleasure to give back to the community with events like these and to see all the smiling faces and happy families. It’s a just a great time for everyone.”
