TCCU Makes Sandwiches for Night Shelter During the Holidays

TCCU holiday help

Tarrant County's Credit Union (TCCU) staff members came together for their annual holiday giveback to the Presbyterian Night Shelter on Dec. 13, 2017.

TCCU staff members collectively devoted their last staff meeting of the year to make peanut-butter sandwiches for the Presbyterian Night Shelter, the largest provider of services to the county’s homeless, housing approximately 700 people each night.

TCCU takes pride in its holiday sandwich-making tradition, which began more than 11 years ago. This year, TCCU was able to provide 500 sandwiches—topped off with a peppermint stick—to those who lean on the Presbyterian Night Shelter for shelter and support.

“The sandwiches are available to all who may not get a meal otherwise,” said TCCU VP of Operations Shelli McCoy. “The shelter provides meals every day, but if they run out of prepared meals, the sandwiches are distributed as supplements.”

“Presbyterian Night Shelter is so grateful to Tarrant County’s Credit Union for remembering our most vulnerable neighbors at the holidays,” said Presbyterian Night Shelter’s VP of Development Pamela Daubert. "Their donations of sandwiches go a long way toward making life more comfortable for our clients."

Throughout the year, TCCU gives back and participates in projects that deliver positive impact on the community. TCCU thrives on giving back and carries out the credit union philosophy in each and every endeavor. 

Tarrant County's Credit Union (TCCU) is an $85M credit union serving over 10,600 members throughout Tarrant County, Texas. TCCU operates four branches located in Fort Worth, Hurst, Lake Worth, and Arlington. Learn more at tccu-tx.com.
