Hundreds of children at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center will receive toys through the year. Seasons FCU members and employees donated hundreds of toys after hearing in the news the supply of toys given to patients is running low. During the month of August, Seasons FCU was able to fulfill this need with a successful membership toy drive. Members were invited to drop off new toys and games in the branch.
Donated items will be used throughout the year as gifts to individual patients in various age groups. At the hospital, they give kids new toys to help them with the recovery process after surgery or a medical procedure. The Connecticut Children's Medical Center receives a lot of donations during Christmas time, but typically by the end of summer they run a little low. In addition, donated items may be utilized in playrooms and support groups as in-room activities for patients and in conjunction with therapies.
“We believe in the importance of giving back to the tremendous communities we serve,” said Keith Wiemert, President/CEO of Seasons Federal Credit Union. “We are extremely grateful for the generosity, efforts and contributions from both our members and our employees to help patients and their families at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. It’s a true demonstration of people working together as a community.”
