Annual Christmas Gift Drive for Lamar Elementary

CRCU Team with Christmas Donations for Lamar Elementary
The employees of Community Resource Credit Union (CRCU) recently joined together for our annual Partners in Education Christmas Gift Drive, benefiting the students and siblings of Lamar Elementary. Our wonderful employees purchased, wrapped and presented all of the gifts that will make this Christmas holiday special for less fortunate families. Each year, the employees of CRCU adopt selected students (and their siblings) to make sure these children have gifts to unwrap on Christmas morning. In all, 88+ well-deserving students and siblings will have an extra reason to smile this holiday season!
