Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union Employees, Members Donate to Charities
Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union employees and members donated and supported two local charities this holiday season.
FMFCU presented Operation Warm with a $2,300 donation during an annual children’s holiday and coat distribution party hosted by Riddle Hospital. The donated funds are used by Operation Warm to purchase new winter coats that are then distributed to local children in need.
‘Knowing this was possible through the generosity of Credit Union members and employees, and seeing the expression on these children’s faces after they received their new coat was moving,’ Donna Surotchak, FMFCU Riddle Hospital branch manager, said.
FMFCU employees also helped create a happy holiday for children in need through CityTeam Ministries of Chester by participating in the organization’s Adopt-A-Family program.
Six local children ‘adopted’ by Credit Union employees received a number of gifts from their holiday wish list.
‘Employees generously and enthusiastically participated in this program by donating bikes, sports equipment, dolls, games and more,’ noted Kelly Donnelly-Chaudrue, FMFCU Support Services team supervisor and coordinator of the effort. ‘These toys were delivered with care, well wishes and smiles.’
