Fill the Canoe Back to School Drive

July 25-August 12

 We invite you to participate in the Annual Fill the Canoe Back to School Drive. Each year, Red Canoe Credit Union partners with our branch communities to collect thousands of pounds of school supplies, which are then matched pound-for-pound by the credit union. 

This year, the community has two ways to support Fill the Canoe. You can drop off donations of new backpacks at the Federal Way Red Canoe branch, or donate funds online at All donations will go to We Love Our City for Federal Way Public School students and families in most need.

Your support of Fill the Canoe helps ensure children in our community get the tools they need this fall. We’re proud of Red Canoe Credit Union’s commitment to local kids. Please join our efforts if you can!

Ways to help:

Donate School Supplies! Drop off new backpack donations at Red Canoe Credit Union Branch (33616 Pacific Hwy S.), or at Family Life Community Church and all South King Fire and Rescue Stations.

Donate Dollars! Donate online from July 25-August 12 at
