January 3, 2020 – Delray Beach, FL:
Local Credit Union Donated Toys and Brought Joy to Kids in Need
This past December, IBM Southeast Employees’ Credit Union’s Southeast Credit Union (SECU) Foundation hosted the 3rd Annual Jingle Bells at the Branches events.
The SECU Foundation believes that children are our future and that investing in their success now is important. Members of the community were invited to purchase a paper bell at a branch to hang on the walls, donate online, or drop off an unwrapped toy for a boy or girl aged four to five. Over 550 children and their families were invited to these events which helped underprivileged children ages four and five to enjoy activities, eat holiday treats, receive donated gifts, and meet our special guest from the North Pole.
