Support our Cherish the Children 2022 campaign!
Every child deserves a special delivery for the holidays—and once again, we’re helping to make it happen! From Nov. 28 through Dec. 22, we are hosting our Cherish the Children 2022 campaign in cooperation with the local Area Offices of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF). Equipped with “wish lists” of names, ages and gift ideas—as well as the support of our dedicated communities—we aim to provide gifts for a total of 500 children in need.
“Over the years, our generous members, employees and credit union partners have brightened the holidays for many area children,” said President and CEO, Glenn Welch. “We are grateful to have the opportunity to make a difference again this year and look forward to making even more Christmas wishes come true.”
Take a tag, bring joy to a child
From the wish lists, we’ve produced a tag for each child and placed them on holiday trees at all our Freedom branches. We encourage employees and members to choose a tag (or two, or more!) from a tree, purchase the item the child has requested and bring it back to the branch (unwrapped and with tag attached) to put under the tree.
Monetary donations are also welcome as our own “elves” will be rounding out the effort with a festive shopping spree.
“Children add the real magic to the holiday season,” Welch said. “We make every effort to ensure every child receives a present, and one they truly will enjoy.”
