Day Air Credit Union has been hard at work getting ready for the holidays. Their branches and departments have partnered with local organizations to help spread holiday cheer throughout the Miami Valley.
The Kettering and Lebanon branches of Day Air partnered with their respective city governments to bring gifts to children through The Giving Tree Program. The Giving Tree Program is designed to help families in the Kettering and Lebanon School Districts. The efforts of Day Air associates in these communities are helping numerous kids have a brighter holiday season.
The Day Air Centerville Branch sponsored multiple children this year through the Centerville City Schools Adopt a Family Program. The program included buying gifts, clothing and more, as well as, bringing the gifts to the families. The Beavercreek Branch sponsored Choices, Inc. this year to foster families and kids. This organization works with teenagers as they age out of foster care. Four Day Air associates each sponsored a foster child by getting them an item off their wish list. Day Air’s York Commons Branch made a monetary donation to the Butler Township Christmas with Cops. The officers use the donated funds to purchase Christmas gifts for families in Butler Township.
The UD Branch donated three Thanksgiving Food Baskets to the University of Dayton’s Campus Ministry Center for Social Concern for their annual Thanksgiving food drive. The Campus Ministry distributes the food to those in the Dayton community who are in need during the Thanksgiving Holiday. The UD Branch also participates in Christmas on Campus at the University of Dayton. Buses of children come to UD and students take the children from the City of Dayton all around campus for fun activities, games, food, and much more! The kids have so much fun every December!
Day Air also participated in other various events including the Cookie Walk for We Care Arts, Pancakes with Prancer fundraiser for the Christmas Smiles Program sponsored by the Moraine Rotary, Mrs. Claus for East Side Children, Yes for Youth Tike Shop, and the Polen Farm Christmas Day Gathering.
“Day Air Credit Union is honored to have its associates come together this holiday season to help families in the Miami Valley have a brighter holiday season and enjoy more time with their loved ones,” said Bill Burke, President and CEO of Day Air Credit Union. “As a financial cooperative we strive to care for the families in the communities in which we serve.”
