Credit Union Association of New York, Albany, N.Y., said five credit unions from the Jamestown Chapter collected toys again this year to help make the holidays a little brighter for area children. Members and employees from Affinity One FCU, Greater Chautauqua FCU, Inner Lakes FCU, Jamestown Area Community FCU, Jamestown Post Office Employees FCU, Southern Chautauqua FCU and the credit unions themselves, collected more than 600 toys this year.  The unwrapped gifts were donated to Love Inc. in Jamestown and Union Relief of Westfield at a Jamestown Chapter Toys for Kids dinner in December. Assemblyman Andrew Goodell (R-Jamestown) was a guest speaker at the festive event.  An additional $400 was raised during the event for wrapping paper and other needed items. Love Inc. and Union Relief of Westfield distributed the bounty of toys to children in need over the holidays.

Advance Financial Federal Credit Union, Hammond, Ind., collected and donated 70 presents during the Angel Tree Gift Drive. Staff and members of AFFCU added even more this year as they collected over 300 pounds of food and over $1,000 in monetary donations during their Annual Food Drive, supporting the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana.
