WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Texoma Community Credit Union has once again partnered with Adult Protective Services to help serve those in need this holiday season.

APS caseworkers will join TCCU employees in decorating the “Tree of Life” with ornaments representing each person in need and their wish list.

The community is encouraged to stop by any of TCCU`s branches between December 1 and December 10 to choose an ornament so that they can be a Santa for someone in need.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pick an ornament, and discover what it is the recipient of your gift needs. It is often something like a small appliance, personal hygiene items, or articles of clothing.
  • Take the ornament to a TCCU employee, and register as a project participant. They’ll explain how you should bring the gift to TCCU unwrapped, in an unsealed gift bag.
  • Drop off the gifts to TCCU by Saturday, December 11 so APS can distribute the gifts in time for Christmas.
  • If you would prefer to donate money to the Tree of Life Project, you may do so by depositing funds to a special account that has been set up at Texoma Community Credit Union.
