Redwood Credit Union Holds Holiday Toy & Food Drives

Redwood Credit Union Holds Holiday Toy & Food Drives
RCU to Collect Food, Gifts at All Locations to Benefit Local Agencies

Redwood Credit Union (RCU) will be holding its annual holiday food and toy donation programs in all of its North Bay and San Francisco locations. All branches, as well as the RCU Auto Center, will be collecting new, unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items Nov. 28 through Dec. 13.

Partnerships with nonprofit agencies throughout the North Bay ensure that donations will remain in the local community, benefitting children and families in need during the holiday season. In Sonoma County, gift drives will support the Sonoma County Volunteer Center’s Secret Santa Program, and food donations will support the Redwood Empire Food Bank.

“What makes RCU’s toy and food drives unique is the way our communities rise to the occasion to help those less fortunate during the holiday season. This program has been an RCU tradition for more than 20 years, and I am always overwhelmed by the generosity of our Members and staff,” said Brett Martinez, President and CEO of RCU.
