It’s hard to see school supplies on the store shelves already, yes it’s almost that time again! Back-to-School time means our annual Backpacks ‘n Binders Drive – this year to benefit Tillie’s Touch. Since the inception of the organization in 2009, Tillie’s Touch has found that there is a strong need for school supplies that some families in the area just cannot afford. Here’s the founder of Tillie’s Touch, Dale Johnson, to share the story of need and how kids appreciate – and excel – as a result of the kindness of our community.

What To Do Next To Help Outseneca savings backpack drive for back to school

Between August 2nd and 27th, 2021 drop off your new backpack and/or binders to any Seneca Savings branch location in Baldwinsville, North Syracuse, Liverpool or Bridgeport. We’ll ensure that all backpacks and binders get to Dale and his organization in time for the new school year!

You’re in Luck!


During the month of August, Seneca Savings has a month-long backpack giveaway for any new checking account you open at the bank! So if you open an account, you (could) donate your backpack to our drive! Here’s our first backpack donation from Cindy at Property Restoration, Inc. (above) Thank You again Cindy for all you do to support our efforts! And THANK YOU once again to the communities we serve for helping all of us together, brighten a child’s day and help get them off on the right foot this school year!
