Maui County Federal Credit Union hosts a school supplies and backpack drive at each of its branches in Kahului, Lahaina and Wailuku from June 14 until July 16, 2021. These events support The Salvation Army’s annual back-to-school efforts to provide backpacks filled with school supplies for Maui’s children in need. 

Backpacks and supplies from the below list can be dropped off at Maui County FCU branches during business hours. Branches are located at 270 Dairy Road in Maui Marketplace in Kahului, 270 Lahainaluna Road in Lahaina, and 1888 Wili Pā Loop in Wailuku. Donations for adopting a backpack are also being accepted at all Maui County FCU branches and are 100% tax deductible. 

“We are excited to partner with The Salvation Army for the fourth consecutive year to help local students go back-to-school prepared to succeed. By providing school supplies for Maui kids in need, we hope to help students return to the important work of attending school and getting an education that will assist in preparing them for the future.” said Maui County Federal Credit Union President/CEO, Gary Fukuroku.


“We are grateful to Maui County FCU and their members for supporting keiki in need across our island,” said Lt. Steven Howard, Corps Officer and Maui County Coordinator for The Salvation Army. “Especially during these challenging times, these back-to-school items will help ease the minds of students and their families as they prepare for the new school year.”
