Employees of the $977 million, Austin-based Greater Texas Credit Union participate in a gift wrapping party for local charity Any Baby Can for placement under the Greater Texas Christmas tree. The credit union partnered with the organization, which assists babies and families in need, to “adopt” eight families (a total of 32 people), purchasing toys, games, clothes and gift cards to ensure each family member had a gift to unwrap on Christmas Day. Those helped in the past by Any Baby Can include Greater Texas contact center employee Jacqueline Hammett, who received baby furniture, diapers, clothing and continued services from the charity almost 30 years ago as her newborn daughter, Mystique, spent the Christmas holidays in the neonatal unit of a children’s hospital while facing serious health challenges; Mystique is now 29 years old.
