The Boys & Girls Club of Delaware was recently presented with a $6,000 donation from one of its proudest supporters; Dover Federal Credit Union. This is one of the many ways that this local credit union has partnered with this non-profit in the past few months. In the summer of 2018, Dover Federal donated a large quantity of board games, card games, sports equipment and other materials to be used for their kids programs in collaboration with other Delaware Credit Unions located out of New Castle County. Their giving continued when Dover Federal employees sponsored over 20 children during the holidays to make sure that no kid was forgotten or went without.
In addition to these donations, several Dover Federal team members have also taken opportunities in the recent months to volunteer at the Boys & Girls Club doing things such as helping kids with homework, painting chairs, and taking part in other activities to help serve this well respected organization.
Tyler Kuhn, Marketing Manager of Dover Federal said “It is our honor to stand side by side with such a respected organization. Every minute and dollar that we spend helping the Boys and Girls Club is made worth it when we see the smiles on the faces of the students that they serve.”
