Metro Credit Union Employees Participate in Holiday Giving

 

Chelsea, MA – December 25, 2009 –  In celebration of the holiday season, Metro Credit Union employees contributed to several local non-profit organizations' holiday giving programs to help those in need.

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.
