Indiana Members Credit Union delivers a brighter holiday to local school

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (December 21, 2017) — Indiana Members Credit Union (IMCU), Central Indiana’s largest credit union, distributed toys and gifts to brighten up the holidays and bring joy to many happy children and staff during IMCU’s holiday celebration at Francis W. Parker Montessori School IPS 56 in Indianapolis, on Wednesday, December 13, 2017.  During the holiday event all students received a winter scarf, handmade by IMCU employees.  The students in the Early Childhood Group also had a surprise visit from Santa Claus and were given a small toy.  Additionally, all faculty and staff received a gift bag containing a turkey dinner.

This is the first year for IMCU’s Holiday Event at Francis W. Parker Montessori School IPS 56.  Through generous donations from vendors, members and employees, Indiana Members Foundation was able to provide 330 scarves to all students, 85 toys to the Early Childhood Group and 67 turkey dinners to the faculty and staff.

“We are proud to partner with Francis W. Parker Montessori School 56 and provide them with a special holiday celebration that included items not only for the students but also the faculty and staff,” stated Ron Collier, President and CEO of IMCU.  “We gathered items for a turkey dinner gift basket which were given to each and every staff member.  IMCU employees also donated money to purchase materials to make scarves for the kids at Francis W. Parker.  Employees at our Southside location took a morning to cut out the fleece material to make over 330 scarves for the students.  In addition, students in the Early Childhood Group were provided with a toy from IMCU.”

“This is our (Indiana Members Foundation) first year to partner with Francis W. Parker Montessori School 56.  We are excited about this partnership and the opportunity to provide these students with a new toy and scarf and to help spread holiday cheer throughout the school.  I can’t thank Indiana Members Credit Union members, employees and volunteers enough for the generous support,” stated Mandy Emery, VP community involvement for IMCU.

At the holiday celebration, students received a toy, as well as a handmade scarf, and each staff member received an IMCU gift bag containing a turkey, all items needed for a green bean casserole, brownie mix, stuffing, corn bread mix and potatoes.  All items were delivered to Francis W.
