Supporting local schools with donations of essentials items for students & teachers

Donation Drives

Over the years we have been able to support schools in and around the Twin-Cities with donations of hats & mittens and school supplies. Help us to continue to do this by donating to our drives.

In keeping with the credit union tradition of service and giving back, Expedition CU has held two annual donation drives for several years now, the Hat & Mitten Drive and the School Supply Drive. We have been able to provide thousands of hats, mittens, scarves, and gloves to many children in need of essential winter wear. We have also provided schools & classrooms with supplies that they can give to students who don’t have the items required in class. Everything we receive in donations are distributed to schools that have a need around the metro Twin-Cities area and outstate Minnesota.

We typically run the Hat & Mitten Drive from mid-October to mid-January, and our School Supply Drive starts in July and ends August 31. However, we do accept donations at any time and will store them until the next donation period unless we have a school or educator that lets us know of an immediate need. If you would like to help us out and have a donation of new winter weather gear or school supplies, you can drop them off at (or mail in to) one of our branch locations. We do take cash donations in the branches as well.
