For over a decade, The Summit Federal Credit Union has been happy to be a part of Villa of Hope’s Holiday Wishes Program to benefit the Villa’s kids. Each of our branches displays “wish cards” for gifts left by the kids. Visitors to each branch are able to take one or more cards and purchase a gift from each card. The gifts are brought back to The Summit and ultimately delivered to the Villa. We are consistently touched by how The Summit’s members show their generosity.
“We are always so overwhelmed with gratitude when we see our members bring in gift bags just overflowing,” said Tiffany Bermudez, Senior Member Service Specialist at The Summit’s Hilton branch. “What a gift to us to know that the families that we service are spreading joy to other families.”
The Villa of Hope provides community-based, educational and residential services to children and young adults in the Rochester-area who are struggling with trauma and other hardships.
Sandra Rotolo from The Villa of Hope cited the ongoing partnership between The Summit and the Villa as a heartwarming and dependable part of the holiday season. “Not only do they share what the program is all about to their members, but they donate to our families as well. Gathering donations for the Holiday Wishes program from The Summit Federal Credit Union has become one of my favorite and inspiring holiday traditions… like coming home for the holidays to that small town and being embraced by friends!”
