Annual Holiday Care Package Collection for our deployed service men & women

Every November, from the help of our members, we collect thousands of items that help the Blue Star Mothers send out boxes to men and women who are overseas and away from their loved ones during Christmas. 

DONATE (Monetary or items)

As a THANK YOU for your donation, you will be entered to WIN $100 CASH when you stop in with items or donate $5.00 or more!! 

All 4 GCFCU locations proudly open our doors to members and non-members who would like to donate to this awesome collection! 

LET US DO THE SHOPPING FOR YOU! We look for great deals and items in bulk to get the most out of all donated money!

HERE IS A HELPFUL LIST IF YOU PREFER TO DONATE ITEMS IN NEED. We also have printed lists available in our offices.
