Freedom Credit Union will once again host our annual “Cherish the Children” campaign this holiday season. For the past eight years, the generosity from Freedom’s members, employees and credit union partners have brightened the holidays for many area children. This year we hope to bring even more smiles to local families in need!
Each year, the Holyoke and Springfield Department of Children and Families provide Freedom Credit Union with a large list of children’s names, ages, and gift ideas. From the list, we produce tags for each child that are placed on the holiday trees in our branches. Freedom’s employees and members choose tags from the tree and provide the gift the child has requested. All gifts are returned to the credit union, unwrapped, with the tag attached. A representative from DCF periodically visits us to collect the gifts for distribution. We make sure every child receives a gift! (Monetary donations are also accepted.)
The “Cherish the Children” campaign will run until Wednesday, December 21st. We have tremendous potential to make a difference again this holiday season and we thank you ahead of time for your continued support and participation in “Cherish the Children”.
