Found on Facebook: Credit Unions Spreading Holiday Cheer!

Kansas and Missouri credit unions are working hard to make sure that this is the merriest time of the year! They are out in full force -- from ringing bells for Salvation Army to volunteering at local charities to donating to needy families -- credit unions are making a difference. 

Below are just a few examples of how credit unions are embracing the season and helping make their communities stronger. We found these credit unions on Facebook, and we'll share more when we see them! 

​Azura Credit Union Volunteers for Topeka Rescue Mission & TARC

Azura Credit Union's (Topeka, KS) employees are passionate about giving back to their community. In the last few weeks alone, they have spent time volunteering for two local organizations that make a difference in Topeka.  

Staffers supported TARC's Winter Wonderland. Located in Topeka, the non-profit organization provides excellent service, support and advocacy to children, families and adults with developmental, intellectual and related disabilities. 

A few days later, employees spent time at Topeka Rescue Mission helping guests at the Christmas Shop. People in the community donate to the shop (toys, decorations, trees, etc.) and those in need can "shop" the store, ensuring their families have a merry Christmas. The Topeka Rescue Mission is a non-denominational Christian organization dedicated to helping the homeless by providing emergency shelter, meals, clothing and other needed items, programs, and services, to homeless men, women, and families, as well as providing food and other necessities to the needy.

River Region Credit Union & TelComm Credit Union Ring Bells for Salvation Army

We spotted some pictures of River Region Credit Union (Jefferson City, MO) and TelComm Credit Union's (Springfield, MO) employees braving the elements to raise donations for the Salvation Army! Staffers from both credit unions were seen out in the community ringing bells.

River Region Credit Union's efforts support the Salvation Army of Jefferson City, and TelComm Credit Union's efforts will benefit Salvation Army of Springfield. 

In addition, TelComm Credit Union is hosting a drive to collect gifts and donations for FosterAdopt Connect, an organization dedicated to providing foster and adoptive children a stable, loving and nurturing family environment.
