Members of the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union have again shown their generosity. During the 6th edition of the „Children’s Holiday Smile” charity drive that ended on December 31, they raised $120,354 for underprivileged children.
During the holiday season, members of our Credit Union took up collection for children’s hospices in Częstochowa, Gizycko and Gdynia, as well as for sick Polish children in the US. The charitable drive, organized in cooperation with the New York’s Children’s Smile Foundation, lasted from November 29 to December 31, 2019. “The campaign has become a permanent staple of our calendar, so that PSFCU members are waiting for the end of November and the month of December to be able to take part in a charity drive for children in need. And they do not disappoint: over the past six years, we have already collected 732 thousand dollars for underprivileged children - said PSFCU, President/Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Bogdan Chmielewski.
