HEPPNER — The Bank of Eastern Oregon is collecting school supplies for local elementary schools.

Each of the bank's 13 branches will accept donations, which will be distributed to local schools. In addition, each branch will hold a drawing for a backpack filled with supplies for a local student. Community members with a student in grade school are encouraged to stop in and fill out a ticket. People do not have to be a Bank of Eastern Oregon customer to donate supplies or enter the drawing.

“We welcome you to join with your local branch and celebrate the spirit of your hometown,” said Becky Kindle, chief banking officer. “Bring your school supply donations to any branch of Bank of Eastern Oregon.”

BEO branches in Oregon are located in Heppner, Ione, Condon, Fossil, Moro, Arlington, Boardman, Irrigon, Athena, Enterprise, Prairie City, John Day and Burns. For more information, contact Kindle at 541-676-0201 or bkindle@beobank.com.
