NAMPA -- Just in time for school, 20 students in Nampa got the supplies they need thanks to U.S. Bank.

The students range from kindergarten to 11th grade.

They all live in the New Hope subdivision in Nampa, which is part of a national non-profit called Mercy Housing.

Last week, U.S. Bank employees went on shopping spree to buy the backpacks and supplies, and today was delivery day.

"We've had a long relationship with Mercy Housing and New Hope subdivision. We've provided them grants over the years and we at U.S. Bank very much like to be involved in the community and found this to be a great way to help out," said Rob Aravich, Sr. Vice President, U.S. Bank.

Aravich says the company has donated more than $27,000 in grants to Mercy Housing since 2010.
