Credit union employees donate to Open Arms

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -An Albany credit union donates money to help keep abused children warm this winter, to buy them winter coats and blankets.

This morning Oliver Sindersine with the Albany Federal Employees Credit Union gave a 438 dollar check to Open Arms, Incorporated, a non profit child abuse victims shelter. State cutbacks took away the clothing allowance for Open Arms, so this donation will fill that need.

Albany Federal Employees Credit Union's business development manager Oliver Sindersine said "We wanted to help childred that are coming from an abused family, or whatever situation they are in, and we wanted to keep it local."

Open Arms Associate. Executive Director Rosalynn Fliggins said "This is one of the year's funds are cut for us too, so this coming in is a big help, and definitely a need for the kids."

The money was donated by the credit union's employees and members.
