Texas leagues Adopt-A-Family program deadline Friday
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (12/3/08)--The Texas Credit Union League's Adopt-A-Family program has a waiting list of donors eager to help spread holiday cheer to Southeast Texas credit union employees affected by Hurricane Ike and who are still displaced from their homes. Friday is the deadline for completing an online application for assistance through the league's "Adopt-A-Family" program. The program launched two months ago, with the league appealing to those experiencing personal hardship from the hurricane. To date, more than 10 employees have been added to an "angel" tree and all have been adopted. The Texas Credit Union Foundation has awarded more than 900 emergency grants to credit union employees in the affected area, but it says other families likely could benefit from the "Adopt-A-Family" program. To be eligible, one must be a credit union employee, have at least one child and have suffered tremendous personal loss, said the league's LoneStar Leaguer (Dec. 2). To protect adoptees' privacy, adopters will receive only first names of the employee and children, the children's ages, the family's wish list, and the name and address of the place of employment.
