St. Vincent Catholic Charities (STVCC) proudly presents LAFCU as its new title sponsor for the third annual Spring Into Giving campaign. Taking place from March 21 to April 30, this donation drive focuses on collecting household items that will assist children and families in need that STVCC serves.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with LAFCU, whose philosophy of ‘People Helping People’ matches perfectly with this campaign,” shared STVCC CEO Andrea Seyka. “For over 65 years, we’ve witnessed members of the community come together and share a commitment to help those in need.”
LAFCU will be playing a prominent role in the campaign with seven of their nine branches serving as collection sites for donations.
“The Spring Into Giving event is a true community-wide undertaking that serves to strengthen not only those in need, but all who take part,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, LAFCU’s senior vice president of marketing. “At LAFCU we take our mission of helping others to heart, so we are especially proud to be part of this annual drive to provide for new members of our community.”
The most common donations needed include pots and pans, alarm clocks, cooking utensils, bowls, plates, cutlery, paper towel/toilet paper, cleaning tools/supplies, sheet sets (twin and double size), blanket and towel sets, lamps, and gift cards to purchase additional items not donated.
Donations can be made throughout the month of April. In addition to LAFCU branches, donations can be dropped off at STVCC’s Service Center, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will be providing donation boxes that will be placed at LAFCU locations.
