IBMSECU Hosts Head Start Christmas Party
IBMSECU’s Federal Center Branch employees and members recently hosted the 45th Annual Children’s Christmas Party for kids ages 3 to 7 in the local Atlanta Head Start Program.
Through the generous donations of gifts, money and time from our members and the Federal Center Branch staff, 60 children were treated to a morning of Christmas carols, story time, cookies, a meeting with Santa and Mrs. Claus and a bag full of gifts.
The Georgia Head Start Association’s Mission is to provide education, leadership and advocacy that support Head Start programs’ efforts in delivering high quality comprehensive services to Georgia’s children, families and communities.
Michael Miller, CEO of IBMSECU, stated that the credit union enjoys being an active part of several local community charities and events. “We see our employees and members volunteering to make our communities a better place to live as well as help give local youth a better life. We are so proud of them. We look forward to participating in next year’s Christmas Party.”
According to the Georgia Head Start Association, there are 31 organizations, including school systems, community action agencies and universities that operate Head Start and Early Head Start programs in Georgia. Services are provided to children and families in 157 out of 159 counties in Georgia.
