About Fill the Canoe

In 2007, Red Canoe Credit Union facilitated its first Fill the Canoe school supply drive to help local kids in need to succeed throughout the school year. Since then, Red Canoe has matched each pound of school supplies donated by the community, pound-for-pound. With the help of our members, partners, local businesses, and friends, we've matched more than 147,000 pounds of school supplies to date! In 2020, we continued to support local students in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic by moving Fill the Canoe online. 


This year, as our communities begin to open up, we'll continue to "fill the canoe" with online donations and collect school supplies in each of our branches. Red Canoe will continue to match online donations dollar-for-dollar* and school supplies donations pound-for-pound. Our partner organizations in each community will receive 100% of online donations, along with Red Canoe's donation match, to support students in your community.
