At BrightStar Credit Union, we understand that education is the key to ``building a brighter community!`` We have proudly partnered with Broward Education Foundation to support their annual School Supply Drive for many years. Through the generosity of people like you, Broward Education Foundation supplies in-need students in our community with the supplies they need to learn. All BrightStar locations have drop-off bins near the front door to collect your school donations.

Will you help?

With your help last year, the BEF School Supply Drive directly helped 41,000 children in 69 Broward County Public Schools! Before the pandemic, more than 200,000 students in Broward Schools were living in poverty, based on qualification and participation in the National School Lunch Program, where students receive meals through school at a discount or for free. And three students in 4 arrive to class without the requisite school supplies necessary for learning, according to 90% of teachers surveyed by the national non-profit Kids in Need Foundation. School supplies are a luxury for these students.
