Texas league unveils Adopt-a-Family program
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (10/23/08)--The Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) unveiled its Adopt-a-Family program Wednesday to help credit union employees in Southeast Texas rebuild their lives and communities in the wake of Hurricane Ike. Traditionally TCUL joins with local charities to “adopt” a family for the holidays and fulfill their wish lists through participation from league staff. This year, TCUL’s choice to adopt three credit union families in Southeast Texas garnered positive feedback and support, the league said (LoneStar Leaguer Oct. 22). TCUL is now soliciting applications from credit union employees in the region to find families in need. Eligible credit union employees must have lost their home in the hurricane and have at least one child. Online application forms are available on the TCUL website. TCUL staff will randomly draw three applications from all the families who are submitted for consideration, and work to fulfill the families’ holiday wish lists. All other applications will be posted on TCUL’s Adopt-Family page on its website. TCUL will post profiles of credit union families in need of “adoption” for the holidays as they are submitted.
