Maple Street celebrates the season of giving

Each and every day, credit unions and community banks across the country work diligently to serve their members/customers and work to build better communities. Maple Street’s mission is to empower these institutions to thrive so, in turn, their neighbors can flourish.

In addition to supporting our clients, Maple Street is also devoted to building up the communities we live and work in, and beyond. As we celebrate the season of giving, we’d like to share about our contributions to making the world a better place this season.

Blankets for Kids House of Seminole

It’s an annual Maple Street tradition for our local team to gather together and create hand-made blankets for the children at the Kids House of Seminole. This local charity’s vision is to break the cycle of violence and end child abuse forever. It has a group of skilled and trained professionals who provide comprehensive services, which include forensic interviews, medical exams, victim support and trauma therapy.

Toy drive for Seminole County Sherriff’s Department

Every child should be able to enjoy the magic of the holidays and a special gift from Santa. Maple Street was excited to participate in this year’s Seminole County Sherriff’s Department toy drive. Our team members collected lots of fun toys for local kids in need this season.

Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is making sure kids and families across the area are being fed. The nonprofit collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 625 feeding partners in seven Central Florida counties. Maple Street held a food drive for the organization this holiday season.

In addition to hosting drives and volunteering at local charities, Maple Street was proud to donate to organizations important to our remote employees. Organizations we contributed to this year included:
