Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) May 04, 2012
CFE Federal Credit Union members and employees recently responded to the simple needs of local students by collecting new socks, undergarments and books for donation to several school district organizations. These organizations, Kids Closet, Families in Transition program and A Gift for Teaching, provide free clothing and basic school items to eligible children in Central Florida. They constantly need and appreciate support of businesses in the community.
To help stock the shelves at the Kids Closet and Families in Transition store, CFE donated a total of 1,170 clothing items, consisting of 561 pairs of socks and 609 undergarment pieces in several size options. Additional funds were collected during a corporate-wide Jeans Day, whereby employees who contributed $5 to support the drive were allowed to wear jeans to work.
In support of AGFT’s Annual Book Drive, CFE opened all 19 of their branches as designated drop off locations. Plus, CFE members and employees stepped up to the plate and donated close to 1,000 new and gently used children’s books along with $300, enabling AGFT to buy even more books at a discounted rate for kids.
