Back to School 2020. 


The Unknown doesn't have to include School Supplies. 

Returning to School 

Hello Friends! It's hard to believe we are already preparing our kids to go back to school. It seems like only yesterday they were ending the school year at home with online learning. Toilet paper was scarce. Rainbows could be seen in windows and teachers paraded the streets, showing support for their students. Now, almost five months later, here we still are. Toilet paper is back on the shelves. Less and less rainbows are being seen and teachers are busy preparing for both in-class and online learning. It's our new normal. And while COVID-19 continues to be a challenge for all of us, preparing kids for school doesn't need to be. We're here to help! 

School Supply Drive

Now, more than ever, families in our community need our help. The last few months have been a financial struggle for many, many families. Typically this time of year, we're busy collecting donations for our Give Back, Donate a Pack School Supply drive, but this year only monetary donations are being accepted to ensure everyone's safety. But that doesn't mean we aren't still going to give back! This school year, instead of matching your donated backpack, UFirst is going to match your monetary donation! We challenge you to donate at least $10 (the price of a small backpack) or more to help us give back to families who need a helping hand this school year. Are you up to the challenge?

How to Donate

If you accept the challenge and wish to donate to our Back to School Supply Drive, there are a few ways that we can accept your monetary donations: 

  • In person at our Rouses Point or Plattsburgh Main locations during our open hours. 
  • Drop your donation in our 24-hour drop box (located at our Rouses Point and Plattsburgh Main locations). Be sure to clearly label the envelope for school supply donation. 
  • Donate through the drive-thru at Plattsburgh Main.
  • Call 518.324.5700 option 1 and one of our friendly team members can make the transfer for you over the phone. 
  • Email the Marketing Team at

** Please make all checks payable to UFirst FCU. **
