(Dunedin, FL.) October 26, 2022 – Achieva Credit Union has partnered with The Salvation Army
for their annual Angel Tree donation drive to provide a meaningful and impactful way to support
local families in need. This program will take place from Nov. 7 through Dec. 3 and will
provide many children with gifts this holiday season.
“Thanks to the help of our members and community, many children will wake up with gifts who
would have likely otherwise gone without,” said Achieva Chief Operations Officer Jennifer Galley.
“We are honored to partner with the Salvation Army to lift the financial burden of the holidays
for families in need. Donations collected will help children receive toys, bikes, and clothing to brighten their holiday spirit.”
The process to help create unforgettable memories for area children is simple. Visit a participating Achieva branch and look for the Christmas tree. The tree will have paper angel tags and each tag will provide the first name, age, and gender of a child in the program. For families with multiple children, the details will show for each child. Select a tag from the tree, purchase the gifts and be sure to have them returned (with the tag) to the Achieva branch by December 3, 2022.
