Centra accepting donations to support local families


Centra Foundation and Centra Credit Union are offering an opportunity for community members to support local children in need through Cops and Kids.

Instead of buying gifts, Centra members and visitors will be able to make a financial donation online. Fraternal Order of Police Donald M. Winn Lodge 108 in Seymour will use the donations to purchase gifts for children in need through its Cops and Kids program.

Donations will be accepted online through PayPal now through Dec. 12. Centra also will be matching donations given today at 25 cents on the dollar up to $2,500.

Members also can share the spirit of the program by submitting photos from past family holidays at centra.org/2020/11/holiday-giving-program-starts-black-friday.

Through Cops and Kids, children are paired with police officers to shop for holiday gifts, creating positive experiences with law enforcement.

Many families have faced financial difficulties as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the need for support this holiday season is great.

Through the Holiday Giving Program, community members can donate any amount they wish while practicing social distancing.

Centra Foundation is the charitable arm of Centra Credit Union and was formed to extend the credit union’s mission of People Helping People.
