Service Credit Union in Bedford joins Toys for Tots drive

PORTSMOUTH – Service Credit Union, in conjunction with the Marine Corps, recently announced the launch of the 2013 Toys for Tots drive.

The credit union’s president and CEO, Gordon Simmons, was on-hand to greet the Marine Corps’ representative, Staff Sgt. Daniel Sierra, at the credit union’s corporate headquarters in Portsmouth.

Service Credit Union is partnering with Toys for Tots as a corporatewide initiative for the second consecutive year and will collect toys at all of its New Hampshire branches. The drive will end the week of Dec. 16, when the Marines will pick up the boxes.

The Toys for Tots Foundation is the fundraising, funding and support organization for the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. Each year, the foundation relies on donations from corporate partners to help collect and deliver gifts to children.

Service Credit Union is a longtime supporter of all branches of the military. Service Credit Union’s roots began more than 55 years ago at Pease Air Force Base.

The credit union has a branch at 14 Colby Court, Bedford.
