NUVISION FEDERAL CREDIT UNION DONATES THANKSGIVING DINNERS TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FAMILIES IN NEED
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (November 19, 2015) – NuVision Federal Credit Union today announced it has donated Thanksgiving dinners to needy families across Los Angeles and Orange Counties. For each family, NuVision donated a tote bag filled with groceries and a $75 Ralphs Gift Card.
NuVision worked with over 20 local schools throughout Southern California to identify families in need, and made the special Thanksgiving deliveries at each of the schools this week in the cities of Carson, Huntington Beach, Inglewood, Lakewood, Long Beach, Monterey Park, Rosemead and Westminster.
“NuVision was already working with these local schools as part of our “school branch” program designed to help educate young people about banking and the importance of saving,” explained Attila Morgan, Manager of Community Involvement and Business Development at NuVision Federal Credit Union. “It just made sense to extend our holiday giving to these families right here in our own community.”
“We understand that it takes a village to make a difference in a child’s life,” said Carolyn Battle, Principal at Dolores Elementary School in Carson. “We are very grateful to our community partners like NuVision for their kindness expressed to help the children and their families here at Dolores Elementary.”
“It is an honor for NuVision to help make the Thanksgiving holiday more bountiful for these families,” added Morgan. “One mother at Oak View Elementary in Huntington Beach, upon learning that she was receiving the donation, began to cry. Later her son joyfully announced that they would now be able to have pumpkin pie! It’s a touching reminder of what the holiday spirit of giving is all about.”
