CB&S Bank continues school supply collection for Kids to Love
CB&S Bank this past week announced its continued partnership with the Kids to Love organization with this year’s More Than a Backpack school supply drive – and the bank needs the local community’s help to support foster children in need.
The Kids to Love organization has a mission to meet the immediate needs of foster children while they wait for their forever family. The organization has developed multiple programs to help them with this mission, one of them being the More than a Backpack program.
The Kids to Love organization works with foster agencies to provide backpacks, packed with school supplies for the beginning of the next school year, to local foster children.
According to the bank, it is now easier than ever to help with the new Click, Ship & Give option in place to shop online. This allows anyone to donate from anywhere, and the items are shipped directly to the foundation, which is based in nearby Madison.
Volunteers pack the backpacks with the necessary supplies and send them to local foster agencies to be distributed to foster children all over the Southeast in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Georgia.
CB&S Bank, which was established and is headquartered in Russellville and now boasts branches across the Southeast, has partnered with the Kids to Love organization for the past three years to help drive this initiative designed to benefit local foster children within most of its communities.
This past year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the More Than a Backpack program shifted to an online ordering platform instead of in-person donations.
After seeing the response results and how efficient it was, the Kids to Love organization decided to continue with this same method going forward.
