LCU's School Uniform Drive Breaks Record!

Landings CU’s 9th Annual Uniform Drive brought in a record number of donations. The donations were used to purchase 375 uniform pieces, including dresses, skirts, shirts, and jackets. These items were given on Friday, August 4th to the Connecting with Kids (CWK) program. CWK is a service center that provides everyday essentials and school supplies to students in the Tempe Elementary School District. This program gives students of low‐income families the boost they need to start school year fresh and ready to learn. “Of all the programs we have during the year, this is my favorite,” Tara Roether, Landings Marketing Specialist. “I love that we can help these students start the school year off right”.

The clothing drive started on the first of July and took off like a rocket. Landings CU members and employees donated more than $2,200. This surpassed last year’s donations by 150 uniforms, and 225 more uniforms than were donated in 2016. For 65 years Landings Credit Union has been a proud supporter of Arizona schools and educators; this is just one of the many ways they continue to show their support. (read more)

And if you’ve already traded that super-charged convertible dream for a minivan, you can expect your little one’s college education to cost as much as $360,000.

But before you throw your hands up in the air and send junior out looking for a job, you might consider a few strategies to help you prepare for the cost of higher education.
