Help Backpacks 4 Kids 2016!

You can help NBC4 get students ready for the upcoming school year

A new backpack full of pencils, notebooks, crayons and more can get a child excited about going back to school! That's why Apple Federal Credit Union is teaming up with NBC4 again this year to collect donations for children in need. 

On Wednesday, August 24, you can drop off new backpacks and school supplies at the Apple Federal Credit Union Kingstowne branch, at 6831 Sir Viceroy Drive, Alexandria, Va., from 6 a.m. until noon. 

News 4’s Erika Gonzalez and Amelia Draper will be there to accept your donations.

Also, all Apple Federal Credit Union branches are accepting donations now.

Suggested school supplies:

  • Two packs of loose-leaf notebook paper
  • Two dozen #2 pencils
  • Two packages of cap erasers
  • Spiral notebook or bound composition book
  • Yellow highlighters
  • Plain folders with pockets and brads
