Redstone’s Letters to Santa campaign contributes cash and cheer for children’s charities
HUNTSVILLE – Christmas celebrations continued at Redstone Federal Credit Union last week when the organization presented checks for $9,000 to two children’s charities as part of its Letters to Santa campaign.
Each December, Redstone asks area communities to help brighten the lives of children and families by sending a letter to Santa. For every letter dropped in a special Redstone mailbox or emailed to Santa from Redstone’s website, the Credit Union donates $1 to local charities. December’s campaign collected more letters than any of the previous three years.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of North Alabama and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Rutherford County Tennessee will each receive $9,000.
“We look forward to our Letters to Santa campaign each year,’’ said Joe Newberry, Redstone’s President and CEO. “Our communities, our employees and especially the children have embraced it and each year it gets bigger and better,” Newberry said.
Patrick Wynn, Boys and Girls Clubs of North Alabama President and CEO, said Redstone’s support makes a difference all year.
“Every child deserves to have moments of joy in their life. Redstone’s Letters To Santa campaign not only helped put a smile on some of our kids’ faces this Christmas, it also helped provide the funds needed to keep those moments alive throughout the year at Boys and Girls Clubs across North Alabama.”
