    Help Backpacks 4 Kids 2015!

    Behold the power of a new backpack with school supplies: It makes any kid a little more excited to go back to school.

    That power is even more profound for a child in need.

    That's why Apple Federal Credit Union is teaming up with NBC4 to collect donations, school supplies and backpacks for children in need at back-to-school time.

    Come to the Kingstowne branch of Apple Federal Credit Union on Wednesday, August 26 from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. to drop off supplies.

    Or, go online for more info or to donate.
