(Middletown, RI):  People’s Credit Union employees recently participated in the 2011 Special Olympics Scarf Project.  Nine employees spent the past few months knitting and crocheting 24 scarves to be donated to the Special Olympics.

The Special Olympics Scarf Project invites knitters and crocheters to choose any of the 31 Special Olympic Programs to support by donating their knit or crocheted scarves.  As a symbol of unity, community and support within the Special Olympics Movement, the handmade scarves are gifted to athletes, coaches, families, volunteers and supporters of each participating Special Olympics Program. 

People’s Credit Union supports the Special Olympics throughout the year.  Each year employees volunteer at the Special Olympics Summer Games and the Special Olympics Bowl-A-Thon.  Chocolate bars are also sold by employees with donations going to the Special Olympics.

“People’s employees are enthusiastic supporters of the Special Olympics.  The projects we volunteer for throughout the year are both fun and fulfilling.  We are happy we can help out such a wonderful organization,” stated Lyn Dawley, VP of Lending for People’s Credit Union and organizer of the Scarf Project. 

People’s Credit Union serves members through six locations in Bristol, Middletown, Newport, North Kingstown, Portsmouth and Wakefield.
