Redwood Credit Union’s (RCU’s) annual holiday giving program looks a little different this year. Instead of asking members to bring food and gift items into the branches, the credit union is offering virtual options.
While the manner of giving is virtual, RCU’s partner organizations are very real. It’s those organizations that will collect food and gifts and give them out locally to those most in need. To support its communities this year, RCU has built a web page, redwoodcu.org/holiday-giving, to highlight the partnering nonprofits and make it easy for people to contribute.
“In the past, we’ve offered our branches as convenient food and gift collection sites to support local nonprofits, but for safety reasons, we had to do it differently this year,” said Brett Martinez, RCU’s President & CEO. “We’ll miss the cheerful visits, but we feel good about delivering a safe way for people to donate. In this way, we can still work together to make the holidays brighter for those in need.”
And the need is greater than ever this year. RCU encourages all who can to use the holiday giving page to choose a nearby nonprofit that will share the love with local families.
