Flint, Michigan – Dort Federal Credit Union’s Lending Department has once again made a difference in the lives of a deserving family. For over five years, the Lending Department has adopted a family and this year they were able to connect with a family through one of their collectors. The Auld Family was recently hit with economic trouble and that’s when the Lending department, along with their spouses and children stepped in to help.
Through their generous donations they were able to provide the family of nine with a Play Station 2, three Nintendo DS video game systems, pajamas, slippers, guitars, sleds, a digital camera, winter clothes, dolls, art supplies, and even Christmas dinner.
“When we say people helping people, we truly mean it. Adopting a family is a great way for us to give back to the community and share our blessings with those in need. Ultimately, we do this for the children. Our goal is to bring a smile to their face and make their Christmas special,” said Johnna Scherzer, Lending Administrative Assistant.
