Tobyhanna Federal Credit Union raises $1,415 to fight breast cancer

Tobyhanna Federal Credit Union recently donated $1,415 to Susan G. Komen Northeastern Pennsylvania Race for the Cure during a formal check presentation. Funds were raised from a combination of events and fund raisers the credit union organized throughout September and October of this year. The credit union hosted in-branch fund raisers including: the sale of T-shirts that incorporated a “Sharing in the Promise” message; a loose change collection called “Komen Coin Drop;” and a pumpkin decorating contest in which loose change was used to place a vote. The biggest fund raiser was the credit union’s annual “Chili Cook-Off for the Cure” event which was held on Oct. 10 and helped raised $672 towards the total donation. (read more)
