Volunteers at the Congregational Church of East Sumner Food Bank thank Oxford Federal Credit Union for its recent donation.

MEXICO — Oxford Federal Credit Union donated $500 checks to seven food banks from Canton to West Paris to help during the holidays.

Additionally, a $500 Visa gift card was sent to the activities department at Rumford Community Home to purchase gifts for the residents there and checks for $1,000 were given to Daddy O’s Acts of Kindness Foundation in Oxford, Pink Feather Foundation of Oxford and Dixfield Discount Fuel’s annual toy drive.

The credit union wanted to support organizations that are much-needed and appreciated.

The employees of Oxford FCU also spread some cheer when $100 Visa gift cards were delivered to seven schools in the River Valley and eight elementary schools in Oxford Hills. Staff at both locations donate on a regular basis to a fund called “Helping Hands” that was created specifically to give employees a way of their own to give back to the community.
