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 has served the needs of children in our branch communities since 2007.

How You Can Help

Host a drive at your place of business – if you have over 40 lbs of supplies, we’ll even come pick it up from you.

It's easy for groups to plug in and make a difference in the lives of students.  Mobilize your employees, your PTA, civic groups, service or church organizations.
