People’s Credit Union donates to the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program

MIDDLETOWN, RI (December 16, 2016) — People’s Credit Union participated in the Salvation Army’s, Angel Tree Program during this holiday season with coordination from the Credit Union’s Community Enhancement Committee.  The program provides new clothing and or toys for families with children. Angel Trees with tags were set up in the lobbies of all six People’s Credit Union branches.  Employees and members were invited to select a gift tag for a child, which included age, gender and gift requested.

Major Steven Stoops, State Coordinator for Rhode Island Salvation Army stated “There is no purer form of charity and giving to your neighbors than giving through The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.  We have an opportunity to bring joy to families and children we don’t know but who are part of our community and help to make our community strong and unique.  These families will never know who their special Angel is, but we can bring smiles where there were tears, clothes where there were rags, food where there were crumbs, and change lives for the better which is an investment in our great community. The Salvation Army, on behalf of the thousands of families and children it serves here in Rhode Island want to thank each of you special angels for your care and love for the less fortunate.”

People’s Credit Union extends their utmost gratitude to everyone who donated to a  child this holiday season.
