Ga. United Credit Union asking for donations

It needs toys, clothes for DFCS

For the 24th year, Georgia United Credit Union is holding its Wish Tree program to collect new toys and articles of clothing for deserving foster children with local Departments of Family & Children’s Services.

The company asks people to participate by dropping off a gift at any of the 16 Georgia United Branch locations before Dec. 13 so deliveries can be made to DFCS prior to the week of Christmas.

“Georgia United has always been involved in the communities we serve across the state,” said Doug Foote, Georgia United’s president and CEO. “As the economy continues to experience challenges, we wanted to reach out to our county neighbors who are interested in donating toys to deserving children right here at home.”

The Christmas Wish Tree Program is one of Georgia United’s longest running community service projects with an estimated 13,200 gifts donated to multiple county DFCS offices during the tenure of the program.

In the county, Georgia United is collecting food at two locations. One is at its corporate office at 6705 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth. The other is its Gwinnett office at 2270 Satellite Blvd. in Duluth.
