For more than 25 years, employees of APG Federal Credit Union (APGFCU) have partnered with The Salvation Army and its Angel Tree program to provide gifts to local families in need during the December holiday season. APGFCU staff gave generously again this year, collecting hundreds of new toys and gifts of clothing for deserving children in Harford and Cecil counties. In addition, the credit union gave the gift of savings by providing a certificate valued at $25 for each child to redeem and open a share account.
Through the Angel Tree program, local families in need register their children for Christmas gifts through The Salvation Army. Gift-givers may choose to donate all the items on a child’s wish list or additional gifts. Once donations are collected, The Salvation Army sorts and then distributes the gifts to the families before Christmas Eve.
APG Federal Credit Union serves approximately 120,000 members and has more than $1.1 billion in assets (both as of November 30, 2016). The credit union is a financial cooperative and is committed to building members’ wealth. Membership is open to everyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers or attends school in Harford or Cecil County. APGFCU is not-for-profit and member-owned. Eleven branches and two loan centers are located in Harford and Cecil counties. For information, call 410-272-4000 or visit www.APGFCU.com.
