Join us this year for our Spring and Summer Operation BackPack Shred Events. We hold these events each year to raise awareness for students in need of backpacks/school supplies for the school year. Donations are accepted at all branches from May – August of each year.

Donations of new backpacks or cash donations are accepted, but not required.  All donations are passed directly to the VBCPS Social Service department and given to students in need. Each year, there are approximately 700 students in need of school supplies & backpacks in VBCPS.

Date:          May 5 & July 21, 2018
Location:   VBSFCU Bonney Road Branch
Time:          8:00 am – 11:00 am. Please do not come early, there will not be parking available. Enter only via the Bonney Road main entrance.
What to expect: At 8:00 am, we will open the Bonney Road parking lot area. VBSFCU employees will direct you to follow the orange cones up to the shred truck. When you reach the truck, please put your vehicle in park. VBSFCU employees will approach your vehicle to assist you with carrying your three boxes to the shred machine. Your donation will be accepted at that time. All vehicles will then exit onto the side road of the branch, and then back on to Bonney Road.

Limit (3) boxes
