Holiday Giving Program

Centra Foundation will partner with the Salvation Army (FOP Cops & kids in Jackson County) in each of the Indiana communities where Centra Credit Union has a branch.  Angel Tree tags will be displayed on Christmas Trees in the branch. Our intent is to provide a new option for individuals who do not have the time to purchase gifts and return them to the Salvation Army.

Christmas Angels Tags with a child’s name and age will represent a child’s complete wish/need and will be valued from $50- $100.  Other ornaments will offer smaller donation amounts starting at $10.  These donations would be pooled towards the purchase of gifts.

The program will run from Nov 25th – Dec 14th

Date: December 2, 2013
Venue: Any Centra Credit Union Branch
