500 Spokane students receive free backpacks filled with school supplies
for the new school year
Inspirus Credit Union hosted a backpack “shopping” day for high need students and families to pick out new backpacks, and fill them with school supplies for the upcoming school year. Students were given play money to shop with, so they could learn how to budget their money while they shopped the Inspirus Store for all of their back-to-school needs.
