Toy Drive Spreads Holiday Cheer

Merrimack Valley Credit Union Spreads Holiday Cheer with Annual Toy Drive
The credit union collected new, unwrapped toys for donation to local organizations.

Waltham, Mass. – Dec. 22, 2023 — From Monday, Nov. 27, through Saturday, Dec. 16, Merrimack Valley Credit Union (MVCU) held its annual toy drive to support children and families in need throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. All 17 of MVCU’s Bay State retail branches participated in the event, collecting new, unwrapped toys from credit union and community members.

MVCU’s Massachusetts locations donated to local chapters of the Boys & Girls Club ranging from the Merrimack Valley to the South Shore. Boys & Girls Club chapters that received toy donations are:
The Boys & Girls Club of Lower Merrimack Valley
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Haverhill
The Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem
The Boys & Girls Club of Marlborough
The Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester
The Boys & Girls Club of Charlestown
The Boys & Girls Club of Brockton
The Boys & Girls Club of Waltham
The Boys & Girls Club of Worcester
The Boys & Girls Club of Plymouth
The Boys & Girls Club of New Bedford
Hundreds of toys were collected and delivered to the clubs in time for the holidays.

“Our merger [with RTN Federal Credit Union] this summer resulted in MVCU having 19 retail branches, so we were able to support more organizations and many more children and families throughout our field of membership,” says Kevin Zipps, MVCU’s regional sales and service manager of the Metro West / Boston region. “It has been wonderful watching our team come together as one credit union family to support our members and the community during the holiday season.”

MVCU’s New Hampshire locations in Seabrook, N.H., and Plaistow, N.H., donated their toys to the Seabrook Firefighters Toy Bank and Ozzie’s Kids, respectively.
