Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) December 29, 2012
The CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union 8th Annual Warm Hearts Coat Drive started in September and ended on October 31, 2012. Members and credit union staff were asked to donate new or gently used clean coats – all sizes and for all ages, child to adult – for those in need in the local communities in Alexandria and Harrisonburg, Virginia. The credit union and its members collected more than 98 winter coats and hats.
“Our annual Warm Hearts Coats Drive is an opportunity for CommonWealth One’s members to express our core philosophy of ‘people helping people.’ It’s always been a really successful coat drive, especially because everyone wants to help during the holiday season,” says Ashley Baldeon, Marketing Manager.
CommonWealth One has a strong commitment to supporting the communities it serves and the members who live there. CommonWealth One not only supports local charities during the holiday season, but also throughout the year with the Children’s Miracle Network, Walk to Fight Breast Cancer, Community Partners for Children, and more.
