Austin, TX – Greater TEXAS Federal Credit Union partnered with KGSR Austin 93.3 and helped over 200 Central Texas families by raising food and supplies for the local non-profit Foundation Communities.
The final push of the campaign and fundraiser was an event on Friday, December 16, 2011 which brought out credit union members, KGSR listeners and the general public with last minute donations. Many boxes of gifts were donated to Foundation Communities from their wish list of supplies and since over 200 families applied for assistance this holiday season, they are using the donations to fill in the gaps. Cash donations totaling $90 were also raised during the live remote.
Foundation Communities is a local non-profit providing first class, affordable homes and support services for thousands of low-income families and individuals, empowering them with the tools they need to succeed. They offer an innovative, proven model that enables our residents and neighbors to achieve educational success and financial stability. Foundation Communities owns and operates 16 properties in Austin and North Texas providing affordable homes to over 2,500 families, create enriched learning environments for over 700 children as well as ongoing adult education and financial coaching, and help over 18,000 low income residents file their taxes free of charge every year.
GTFCU was proud to participate and help bring some comfort and joy to those in need this holiday season. GTFCU has been serving Texans since 1952 with 16 locations across the state.
