The first day of school is in just a few weeks and Brewer Federal Credit Union is trying to help kids get off to a good start.The bank is holding a school supplies drive. They just started the effort about two days ago.They’re asking folks to drop off anything they think kids might need for school.The vice president of the bank, David Defroscia says there is a real need in the community for this type of support. “We are in touch with our members, deal with them one on one all the time – kinda know what some of their economic needs and challenges are most of the time, and when we see a need we try to step up and help out. Our members have always stepped up. Anybody that can afford a little extra has always done this and it helps out those who maybe can’t afford it right now.”Supplies can be dropped off at the North Main Street and Dirigo Drive branches of the Brewer Federal Credit Union.The drive runs until August 24th. The supplies will then be delivered to area schools to be given out.
