Crescent Credit Union Participates in Anton’s Cleaners Coats For Kids Drive

Brockton, MA (October 13, 2010) – Crescent Credit Union is participating as a Corporate Partner in Anton’s Cleaners Coats for Kids winter-coat collection drive. Beginning Monday, October 18, Crescent will be collecting coats from members, neighbors, and employees at its 5 Brockton branches to assist Anton’s Cleaners in collecting good, quality coats – the kind someone would give a friend. The campaign will continue through January 8, 2011.

"Thanks to the generosity of our members, neighbors, and employees, Crescent Credit Union was able to collect over 500 coats in 2009," said Crescent Credit Union President & CEO Robert Gustafson.
 "With the current state of the economy and cold weather right around the corner, the need has never been greater. Our goal is to collect even more coats this year."
Once collected, coats will be delivered to Anton’s Cleaners for distribution. Following cleaning at no charge by Anton’s, Coats for Kids’ Distribution Partners such as Massachusetts Community Action Programs, Salvation Army, Cradles to Crayons, and Catholic Charities, amongst others, will ensure that coats get to those who cannot afford one during the cold weather months.
