First New York Federal Credit Union Creates Winter Scene, TP Forest to Help the Needy this Holiday Season



Toilet paper probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about holiday giving, but this important staple is in high demand this time of year. Capital Region residents who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, previously known as Food Stamps, are not permitted to use those benefits to purchase personal hygiene products, which include deodorant, soap, shampoo, razors and even toilet paper.

First New York Federal Credit Union is addressing that need. The company began collecting toilet paper around Thanksgiving at branches and the corporate office, and on Friday December 6th at 11:00am will present the items to Catholic Charities Tri-County Services. They’ve been building a forest of “trees” out of paper goods in the main lobby of the corporate offices; over 10,000 rolls of toilet paper have been donated to date.

These donated items will support Catholic Charities food pantries, which serve all people regardless of race or religious belief throughout the Capital District. 

First New York Federal Credit Union lives by the philosophy of “People Helping People” and is committed to serving its members and the community.
