Holiday Toy Drive


This Holiday Season, Harris County Federal Credit Union will be collecting toys and monetary donations in support of the BEARing Gifts program. This beneficial program provides holiday gifts to children under the care of CPS in Harris County who would otherwise have no holiday at all.

Be an angel this Christmas by bringing a new unwrapped gift for a boy or girl and you can gain 1 entry into our Angels drawing for a $25 Visa Gift Card. 4 prizes will be awarded, so grab your ticket entry at the front desk when you drop off your toy for Bearing Gifts.

New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off in the credit union lobby beginning November 23rd through December 11, 2015. For each toy received, HCFCU will donate an additional $5 to BEAR, up to $300. If you would rather donate funds and let us do the shopping, monetary donations will also be accepted.

HCFCU staff will be supporting this initiative through individual donations as well as volunteering their time to help out at the BEAR distribution center during the month of December. Together we can help make children’s holiday wishes come true. For more information on how you can participate, please contact us at 713-755-5160.
