About Fill the Canoe

Fill the CanoeFill 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 is active in all of our branch communities and collectively we have raised and matched over 35,000 lbs since its inception in 2007.
