Help Spread a Little Holiday Cheer!

The holiday season is often a time when we like to think about helping people who are less fortunate. The Credit Union is sponsoring TWO community giving projects this year.  This means there are two ways you can help make a difference.

The first is our PTA Clothing Bank fundraiser.  You can read more about it in our previous blog post, here.

We have also partnered with Family Central Inc. for their annual Toy Drive. It’s a sad fact that thousands of children here in South Florida will NOT have a single gift to open this holiday season. We are aiming to change that and help brighten the day of these children so that they have at least one present to open this year.

There is a Toy Drive drop box in each BrightStar location for you to make toy donations.  NEW unwrapped toys are needed for ages infancy to 17 years. Please click here to view a list of suggested items. The deadline to drop off toys at BrightStar is Saturday, December 11.

Help spread the word–tell your friends all about these great programs so we can collect as many toys and raise as much money as possible.  Even small donations can go a long way.  Have a Wonderful Holiday!
