Season of Giving
'Tis the season to give and UFirst FCU is always excited for this time of year! Sure, we give back in lots of different ways all year long, but there's just something special about giving back during the holiday season. Our staff volunteers at the Christmas Bureau Wrapping Booth. We sponsor a Christmas wish list and help buy presents for families that need a little help getting gifts for their kids. Even our holiday dinner for staff and board consists of donations to help Camp Ta Kum Ta. But we can't do it alone. We need your help to make a difference. You choose how you would like to help give back! Here's how:
- Donate to Camp Ta Kum Ta - We have set a goal of $7,500 to send 3 kids to Camp Ta Kum Ta in 2018 and we are so close! We're down to our last $1,000 or so to get there and every dollar helps! It doesn't have to be a large donation. Every $1, $2 or $5 helps us to reach our goal! This is an organization that we have found has touched so many of our members lives. Check them out online at takumta.org. Camp is free for kids to attend and that is why they rely so much on donations like ours and yours. To make a donation, you can:
- Make a check payable to Camp Ta Kum Ta and mail it to UFirst FCU, 274 Rugar Street, Plattsburgh, NY 12901.
- Call 518-324-5700 option 1 to make your donation over the phone. We can easily transfer the donation from your account. Or email Meg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Make your donation at any UFirst location. One of our friendly tellers will happily take care of the transaction for you!
- Donate a Toy or Gift - UFirst is accepting donations on behalf of the Christmas Bureau until December 16th! Just bring your new, unwrapped gift to a UFirst location nearest you.
- Need gift ideas? No problem. We've turned our Christmas Trees into Giving Trees! Each of our locations has a tree labeled with gift ideas. From toddlers to teens, we make it easy to find the right gift. Simply grab a tag and drop your gift back off to us.
- No time to shop? No worries there either. We will accept monetary donations and do the shopping for you! Call 518-324-5700 option 1 to make your donation over the phone. We can easily transfer the donation from your account. Or email Meg at email@example.com. You can also make your donation with any of our tellers.
- Buy an Ornament - We are selling ornaments on behalf of the Plattsburgh Rotary Club! Each year, ornaments are designed to commemorate a local landmark like Macdonough Monument, The Valcour Lighthouse and The Ausable Chasm. This year's featured design is the Plattsburgh Train Station. Click here to check it out! Ornaments are $20 and can only be purchased at our Plattsburgh Main Branch located on 274 Rugar Street. All proceeds go to benefit the Plattsburgh Rotary Club. Previous year ornaments may be available upon request. Email Meg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, we exceed our expectations thanks to the wonderful generosity of our members. We are so proud to serve you all year long and we thank you for your continued support for charities like Camp Ta Kum Ta and the Christmas Bureau! Happy Holidays!
