During the month of January, RTN and other credit unions will be participating in the Cooperative Credit Union Association’s annual Clothes and Blanket Drive. Our branches will be collecting clothes and new blankets for those in need. All donations will go to Mass. Coalition for the Homeless.
In support of the Coalition’s A Bed for Every Child program (which provides new beds for kids who don’t have one of their own), this year, the Clothes and Blanket Drive is adding a new element—pajamas for kids! With your help, the Coalition can include a pair of new pajamas with a child’s new bed.
Since 2011, credit unions participating in this drive have donated nearly 7,200 blankets and thousands of warm clothing items to people in need throughout the state. That’s what the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” is all about!
If you would like to participate, you can drop off your donation at one of our community branches. Thank you for your support.
