Georgia United Credit Union deeks toy & clothing donations for foster children in annual wish tree program

DULUTH, GA (November 18, 2013) — Georgia United Credit Union is holding its 24th annual Wish Tree program to collect new toys and articles of clothing for deserving foster children with local Departments of Family & Children’s Services. Georgia United invites any interested individuals, schools, or civic groups to participate by dropping off a gift at any of the 16 Georgia United Branch locations before December 13 so deliveries can be made to DFCS prior to the week of Christmas.

The Christmas Wish Tree Program is one of Georgia United’s longest running community service projects and one of its most successful with an estimated 13,200 gifts donated to multiple county DFCS offices during the 24 year old tenure of the program.

Doug Foote, Georgia United’s President & CEO, commented, “Georgia United has always been involved in the communities we serve across the state. As the economy continues to experience challenges, we wanted to reach out to our county neighbors who are interested in donating toys to deserving children right here at home. If your group, school or civic organization would like to participate, contact our Marketing Department at 770.476.6409 or electronically at”
