PHILADELPHIA, PA (October 12, 2021) — American Heritage Credit Union (“American Heritage”) has donated over 2,600 new books to hospitals, community centers, and special care facilities throughout the Philadelphia and suburban region during its 12th Annual Books for Kids program. The program collected over $7,800 in donations from members throughout the summer and fall to purchase and distribute the books.

In its twelfth year, American Heritage invited members to support its Books for Kids program by becoming “Book Buddies” and donating $3 to purchase a new book to be donated to local hospitals and organizations in American Heritage’s field of membership. When a member purchases a book donation, a label is included with the donor’s name and affixed inside the book.

American Heritage also made a special book donation to the “Reach Out and Read” program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, which promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatrics by giving books to children and educating their parents on the importance of reading.

“With all the challenges children and schools have faced the past few years, our book donations are needed now more than ever,” stated Bruce K. Foulke, President & CEO of American Heritage. “Children deserve educational enrichment and as many opportunities to advance literacy as possible, and I am so appreciative of American Heritage’s Board of Directors, associates and valued members who have contributed to this program and are helping to advance this cause.”

American Heritage Credit Union is a member-owned financial cooperative with more than $3.7 billion in assets serving more than 800 Workplace Partners and more than 230,000 members, with more than 35 locations across Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Camden Counties.  Founded in 1948, American Heritage Credit Union is now one of the top 100 largest credit unions in the United States.  For more information about American Heritage Credit Union please visit at www.americanheritagecu.org.
