As a Credit Union, UMe’s mission includes “people helping people.” So, for the second year in a row, UMeHelps will be collecting toys and books for Burbank Children 16 and under to make their holiday season just a little brighter.
UMeHelps is supporting Santa’s Room, a Burbank Temporary Aid Center (BTAC) program that collects toys, books and games for Burbank children who otherwise would not have presents to look forward to on Christmas morning. The program helps to fulfill children’s Christmas wishes and helps parents who are under financial strain provide joy to their children. Local parents who request assistance with Christmas are able to visit Santa’s Room to “shop” for their children and chose from the donated gifts.
UMeHelps is an initiative that allows UMe Credit Union, its members, and the Burbank community at large give back to local charities and individuals who are in need of help.
UMeHelps has supported local organizations in need by conducting food and clothing drives, pet adoptions, and participating in fundraising efforts – in addition to promoting awareness of local programs that people in the community can help support.
To participate in the UMeHelps Santa’s Room Toy Drive, please bring new, unwrapped toys to the credit union from November 1-December 6, 2013. Visit umecreditunion.com for a link to a complete list of acceptable donation items – just go to the “news and announcements section” on the home page.
We look forward to seeing you at the credit union and helping spread Santa’s Gifts!
