Red River FCU Donations

Spurred by their marketing assistant, Mary Schreiner, Red River Federal Credit Union decided to be part of the national #GivingTuesday campaign by gathering a plethora of winter essentials to give to the Randy Sams Homeless Shelter. 

For the past few weeks, RRFCU solicited their employees, members, and the community via their Facebook page, asking people to bring items into their branch locations. The response was big, and their donations will definitely make a difference for those who are struggling and toughing it out on the street.

RRFCU collected 10 blankets and 3 bedding sets, 34 coats, 55 pairs of gloves, 15 scarves, 34 toboggans, 66 pairs of socks, 10 pairs of pants, 3 pairs of sleeping pants, 1 pair of pajamas, and 10 sweaters and shirts.

"I am very proud of our employees, and this is just another way they could give back to the community," said Robert Buck, CEO of RRFCU. "When Mary Schreiner came up with the idea to help our local homeless shelter, we thought this would be an excellent opportunity for our employees and members. Mary took ownership of this project and made it a tremendous success."
