PLYMOUTH, Minn. – TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union employees raised $6,000 at their annual holiday party for Perspectives, Inc.
The local nonprofit organization provides a full range of human service programs to at-risk women and children. Perspectives, Inc. provides housing to more than 75 women and 130 children annually. With support systems ranging from in-house academics, mental health and sobriety outcomes, and ensuring heathy environments for children, Perspectives, Inc. helps families rebuild through a total family recovery.
“This $6,000 from TruStone Financial was an incredible surprise to us at year-end and we couldn’t be more grateful,” said Kaylie Burns Gahagan, Director of Community Engagement. “Without generous support from donors like TruStone Financial, we would not be able to provide our students with the programming they need and the support they deserve.”
Perspectives, Inc. plans to utilize the donated funds to enhance their Kids Connection and Kids Café programming, which serves homeless and at-risk children in kindergarten through eighth grade. These programs have become the second home to more than 1,000 St. Louis Park students and work to increase their academic, social and health outcomes.
“Our employees have continuously shown their commitment to giving back to our community,” commented TruStone Financial Chief Executive Officer Tim Bosiacki. “To see the impact our staff can make over the holiday season, especially for such a deserving organization, truly embodies our credit union philosophy of people helping people.”
TruStone Financial employees look forward to continuing to give to local organizations in 2018.
