IBMSECU Helps Broward County Homeless Children Prepare For School Year
IBM Southeast Employees’ Credit Union, IBMSECU, recently collected and donated items for the Broward County Christmas In July Program to benefit homeless children in Broward County and help them prepare for the upcoming school year.
Christmas In July activities culminated with a day filled with entertainment, games, food and gifts that provided homeless children, from newborns to age 18, with new clothing, socks, shoes, underwear, toiletries and reading books. School-aged children also received supplies for the approaching school year. This was all made possible through the generosity of Broward County residents, companies, County employees, and our IBMSECU Members.
The number of children helped by Christmas In July has grown annually. Since its inception in 2002, Christmas In July has served more than 16,000 homeless children in Broward County. Kiwanis Divisions 23 and 24 are also reaching out to the community for financial and in-kind support for Christmas In July. For more information visit Christmasinjulyinc.com or contact 954-684-4897.
Michael Miller, CEO at IBMSECU stated that “Providing school supplies for a child who might not be able to afford items follows the CU philosophy of ‘People Helping People.’ We believe that giving back to the communities we are in is essential to community growth. Children are our future and we were honored to have partnered with and participated in the Broward County Christmas in July Program.”
