The Associated Credit Union Foundation donated hundreds of presents to the Quinn House, Operation HomeFront Georgia, and Norcross Co-op Ministry, fulfilling the gift wishes of more than 600 children through its Fifth Annual Making Caring Count for Christmas Program.
The children’s gift wishes were displayed on paper ornaments in 25 Associated Credit Union Metro Atlanta offices. Credit union members and employees purchased the presents and, in many cases, bought two or three extra gifts for each child to open on Christmas morning.
