Indiana Members Foundation, the charitable arm of Indiana Members Credit Union, is donating backpacks containing school supplies for each child.

Indiana Pacer, George Hill will be on hand for special volunteer activities including an autograph session, closed to the public, however, media guests are welcome for video and photo opportunities.


Many families face the new school year with anxiety stemming from the burden of stretching the family budget to purchase required school supplies. Children in Central Indiana are not able to begin the school year with the proper materials.

To help address these concerns, Indiana Members Credit Union established the Indiana Members Foundation to be a positive influence in the community specifically providing school children in the Indianapolis area with the necessities essential for learning and succeeding in their education.

The objective is to celebrate the start of school by providing students with new backpacks and school supplies.

This is the 11th year for IMCU’s Backpack Stuffing Event and will make over 26,500 backpacks filled with over 675,000 supplies that the Indiana Members Foundation has provided to children in Central Indiana through generous donations from vendors, members and employees.

“IMCU was founded on the campus of IUPUI over 58 years ago, and is passionate about supporting the education system and helping children succeed in school,” said Mandy Emery, vice president of community involvement for IMCU. “One way we can do this is by putting the tools necessary to succeed into their hands. We are extremely grateful for all of the support received from employees, members, vendors and community volunteers who donate their time and effort to give back to those in need.”


Media guests are welcome for photo and video opportunities. This event is not open to the public.
