Tarrant County’s CU Gives to the Center for Transforming Lives
Wednesday, January 25, 2017 6:55 AM

During the holiday season Tarrant County’s Credit Union raised money by selling a staff-decorated Christmas wreath and two 6-foot-tall, toy-filled Christmas stockings. The proceeds from ticket purchases, which amounted to $500, were donated to the Center for Transforming Lives, or CTL, a center that assists women and children living in poverty by providing stability through housing.

TCCU chose to raise money for CTL this holiday season because of the ongoing positive impact CTL has in the community.

The credit union has been a partner with CTL for many years, actively involved in helping residents and children of the center. TCCU staff members have participated in reading to the children who attend the child care centers, painted dorm rooms, and collected and prepped donated items for the CTL resale shop.

“It is our pleasure to work with the Center for Transforming Lives (formerly the YWCA),” said TCCU Business Development Coordinator Melissa Burleson. “Women in Development is just one of the development issues that Tarrant County’s Credit Union has addressed this year and, in doing so, we’ve not only raised money for the Center for Transforming Lives, but feel we’ve also raised awareness for their organization and good works.”

Throughout the year, TCCU is involved in community projects that have positive impact. The credit union staff take pride in giving back and work to ensure that the credit union philosophy of giving back is evident in each event or act of service.
