Christmas for Kids


In the spirit of Christmas, we are very pleased to confirm that our Amherst staff and members have again shown their support of our youth at this time of year by raising $1000 through a Christmas basket raffle and by purchasing gifts for fifty (50) kids under the community banner Christmas for Kids campaign.  Annually, the staff of our Amherst branch has been raising in excess of $1000 to support our community at this time of year – this year the team also participated in the local Christmas for Kids campaign along with other members from the business community.  

 Our involvement in such a very worthwhile event is very closely aligned to our commitment to our youth and communities. I am pleased to acknowledge Terri McKillop, of our Amherst branch, who spearheaded this years’ fundraising event and in particular her recommendation to partner with our community. “I thought this would be a great opportunity for Community Credit Union to get involved with our community” said Terri. The Christmas for Kids campaign is a remarkable initiative – Community Credit Union was provided with fifty angel tags and tracking sheets to record names of our members and staff who picked up an angel tag and when they returned the gift.  All fifty (50) angels will receive a very special Christmas gift as a result of the generosity and the spirit of giving of our staff and members.

Community Credit Union is extremely proud to be an integral part of the local Christmas for Kids campaign in Amherst.  With approximately 9,000 community-minded members, this partnership is a natural fit for our locally-owned financial services organization and complements the numerous fundraising events we engage in throughout the year. We believe that partnerships such as this will significantly benefit our youth and our communities in which we live and work.
