2015 Dora Maxwell Award Winner

Greenwich Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union is the proud recipient of the 2015 Dora Maxwell Award for Social Responsibility.

In 2002 the credit union wanted to get involved in a community project that helped families during the holiday season.  We contacted the social services department in the Town of Greenwich.  They told us about families they assist during the year.  At Christmas time, these families submit an individual request of a clothing item that their child needs.  These requests are given to various organizations for their members to purchase these items.

Our Christmas angel project was born!  Back in 2002 we started with 25 angels.  This year we hung 150 angels on the tree.  The generosity of our membership has made this project a huge success.  Many of you pick an angel off the tree and many more of you donate money.  With these donations, Marie shops for all the gifts.  We box, wrap and deliver the gifts to the Town Hall the week before Christmas.  

Merry Christmas to all and thank you always for your support!
