Pioneer Collecting School Supplies at all 22 Branch Locations to Donate to Rensselaer County Department of Youth



Albany, New York, August 25, 2021 – Today Pioneer announced that its Charitable Foundation will be collecting school supply donations at all 22 branch locations through September 10. All donations will be provided to the Rensselaer County Department of Youth to help restock their school supply closets for their Community Backpack Program.

New items in their original packaging, such as writing utensils, art supplies, notebooks, three-ring binders, and folders, are being collected and may be dropped off at any of Pioneer’s local branches during normal business hours.

Pioneer regularly provides financial assistance and employee volunteer support to hundreds of non-profits each year. Last year, Pioneer’s Foundation donated more than $300,000 to Capital Region non-profit organizations. Monetary donations were distributed to a number of community healthcare organizations, food pantries, emergency housing providers, and other services that support the well-being of local children and their families.

The charitable Foundation was created with the mission of “helping kids be kids” by giving to local non-profits that focus on the health and education of children. Those interested in contributing to the Pioneer Charitable Foundation may make a secure online donation at www.pioneerny.com/community. As always, 100% of contributions are distributed to local non-profits, as all administrative costs are covered by Pioneer Bank.
