About Fill The Canoe

Fill the Canoe is Red Canoe Credit Union’s annual school supply drive. Each year, we collect new school supply donations from our staff, members and communities in our branch markets and match them pound-for pound.

Red Canoe believes every child deserves the chance to start the school year with the right tools to succeed. As our largest philanthropic event, Fill the Canoe has served the needs of children in our branch communities since 2007.
