Maryland CU adopts families through housing commission
ROCKVILLE, Md. (12/11/09)--MCT FCU in Rockville, Md., adopted four underserved families this holiday season for its third annual Holiday Wishes donation drive. The families all receive housing subsidies from the Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC) of Montgomery County. MCT will collect monetary donations in its branches from community members and employees through Dec. 18. Member contributions will be used to purchase movie-themed gift baskets for each family, which will include a DVD player, family-friendly DVDs, and a grocery store gift card for a holiday meal. MCT employees will participate in the holiday giving by “adopting” the children of these families and purchasing gifts and clothing for them. The mission of HOC is to preserve and expand affordable housing in Montgomery County, to make housing available to eligible families of low- and moderate-incomes, and to provide necessary support services to encourage resident self-sufficiency, MCT said. HOC’s use of mixed-income developments has contributed to Montgomery County’s reputation for innovation in affordable housing solutions, the credit union said. MCT FCU has $414.6 million in assets.
