NAPERVILLE – April 4, 2017 – DuPage Credit Union has partnered with the DuPage Regional Office of Education for the fourth straight year to raise funds for DuPage County students in need through its annual We’ve Got Your Back fundraising campaign.

“Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 and pack hundreds of backpacks with the supplies kids need to start the school year,” said Amy Brandt, Vice President of Business Solutions.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will be used to purchase backpacks and basic supplies needed throughout the school year, such as paper, pencils, erasers, calculators, etc.

“A small donation can make a big difference to a child in need by giving them the tools needed to open a whole new world of excitement and creativity,” Brandt added.

Monetary donations are being accepted through August and can be made online at or at a Branch Office: Downers Grove, 725 Ogden Ave.; Naperville, 790 Royal St. George Dr.; and Wheaton, 625 E. Roosevelt Rd.

The fully-stuffed backpacks will be handed out to DuPage County students who attend the Back-to-School Fair in August.

Sponsors of the 2017 We’ve Got Your Back Backpack Fundraiser are: Balance Sheet Solutions, LLC, Diamond Marketing Solutions, Performance Trust Capital Partners, Connection Experience Solutions, Fiserv, Adrenaline, HUB International, Viso graphic, and DuPage Financial Advisors.
