State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) has launched its Second Annual SECU Supports the Troops holiday campaign in all 238 SECU branch locations throughout North Carolina. The campaign goal is to provide 5,000 holiday gift boxes for North Carolina’s National Guard and Reservists deployed throughout the world.
The boxes will include items such as snacks and toiletries, and be accompanied by special thank you letters from local school children. Credit Union branches will have collection boxes for donations, along with a wish list of acceptable items.
In addition to items for the 10” x 10” x 5” gift boxes, SECU is also accepting monetary donations that will be used to assist with shipping costs associated with delivering items to the soldiers. The gift boxes will be shipped in early December.
