Stuffed Animals Donated


Modesto, CA- On October 14th, 2013, Valley First Credit Union will be donating 160 stuffed animals to the Modesto Police Department to be given to less fortunate children.     

As part of Valley First Credit Union’s annual employee team building day, over 150 employees from twelve branches in the Central Valley will participate in a “Build-A-Bear” event.   Staff from the police department will be on hand at the event to accept the donation.  The event is being held at the Modesto S.O.S. Club 819 Sunset Avenue at 3:00 p.m.


Valley First Credit Union regularly makes donations to the local community. Last year, the Credit Union donated hand painted tiles for restoration of the Modesto library.  Also, in years past they donated bikes to the Sierra Vista Children’s Center.  Hank Barrett, President and CEO said "Valley First and its employees are proud to give back to our community and assist those who are less fortunate."
