Metro Credit Union Employees Participate in Holiday Giving  

Chelsea, MA – January 18, 2011- Throughout the month of December, Metro Credit Union employees celebrated the spirit of the season by volunteering for several local non-profit organizations’ holiday giving programs.

Metro employees took part in the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle program. They served as bell-ringers at Metro’s main location in Chelsea. The donations collected were distributed to local senior citizens and families in need. Metro employees also participated in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program during this holiday season, collecting dozens of new toys in an effort to make the holidays special for local children. In addition, Metro employees sponsored families through People Helping People, a non-profit organization in Burlington. They collected gifts and gift cards to retailers and grocery stores so local families could enjoy the holidays.
 
"I am proud of our generous employees who give their time and resources in support of their local community organizations," said Robert M. Cashman, President and CEO of Metro. "All year long our employees exemplify our commitment to giving back to the communities we serve.”
