Fort Financial Credit Union’s Gastonia branch (located at 1475 North New Hope Rd. Gastonia, North Carolina) had the pleasure of giving back to the community recently with their Toys for Tots charity event. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.
Through the generosity of their members, Fort Financial collected over $2,100.00 in member donations. This money was used to purchase over 300 toys for local Gaston County children.
“It’s great to participate in such a wonderful program,” states Doug Kush, Branch Manager at Fort Financial’s Gastonia location. “Our community showed an enormous amount of love and support for this event, and we are truly blessed to be a part of it.”
