You know, TwinStar Credit Union has been doing some pretty sweet things to help our community, and starting November 1st, all Clark County branches will be having a See’s Candies fundraiser to benefit Bridge the Gap. Local branches will have See’s candy bars for sale at only $3.00 each or $5.00 for two, with all proceeds going to help Foster Children in our area.
According to Tony Ruestig, Director of Community Development with TwinStar, “Our goal is to help provide funds for foster kids to receive presents for Christmas and birthdays, clothes, help with summer camps, sports and to receive educational assistance.”
“Since its establishment in 1999, Bridge the Gap (a 501c3 non profit organization) has enabled many children in foster care to experience “firsts” – to receive Christmas presents or have a birthday celebration, to receive new clothes, to play a sport, to receive tutoring, to attend summer camp or to excel at a special skill because they received needed attention, training, and affirmation. Often, children come into the foster care system with only the clothes on their back.”
These kids will melt your heart, so the next time you visit your local TwinStar Credit Union be sure to pick up a bar or two and help bring some happiness in what can otherwise be a very sad time for children.
