Nearly $103,000 for children in need
Members of the Polish and Slavic Federal Credit Union collected nearly $103,000 for three children's hospices and the needs of seriously ill Polish-American children during the annual “Children’s Holiday Smile” charity drive.
The seventh edition of the annual campaign ended on December 31, 2020. The members of our Credit Union made 4,692 payments for a total of $102,905.57. Those payments included:
- $38,390 for “Promyczek,” The Children Home Hospice Foundation in Otwock,
- $25,719 for "Dom Chłopaków," Nursing Home for Children and Youth in Broniszewice,
- $24,435 for Blessed Michal Sopocko Hospice in Vilnius (Lithuania),
- $14,361 for New York Children's Smile Foundation.
PSFCU does not charge any transfer or collection fees. The full amount collected during the drive goes directly to the organizations listed above.
“The members of our Credit Union did not disappoint us and again showed great generosity,” said Bogdan Chmielewski, Chief Executive Officer at PSFCU. “I would like to thank our members for each, even the smallest contribution, done in such difficult times, during the pandemic. The number of nearly 4,700 transactions in the 35 days of the drive is very impressive,” he added.
Every year, our Credit Union members can contribute to the drive starting on the day after Thanksgiving (this year, November 27) until the last day of December.
Polish and Slavic Federal Credit Union has been organizing the holiday drive since 2014. In all seven editions of the campaign, our Credit Union members collected a total amount of more than $834,000 that were entirely donated to 16 hospices in Poland, a hospice in Vilnius and New York Children's Smile Foundation.
