TFCU Team Donated Over 6k Books to El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation

What started as an internal book drive hosted by our Teacher’s Federal Credit Union’s (TFCU) Credit Union Young Professionals (CUYP), turned into an inter-department competition to collect the most books.
“Our team has the reputation of going the extra mile when it comes to customer service; it doesn’t surprise me that the TFCU team has the same mindset when it comes to giving back to our community,” said Max Villaronga, CEO and President of TFCU.

He added, “It is our hope that the books donated will allow the children going through a difficult time, to experience the small joy of escaping into their imagination through the power of storytelling.”

TFCU team member, Maria Aldridge, organized a pancake fundraiser in her free time to purchase books. Some of our employees reached out to educators from Bel Air High School and Lee Elementary for gently used books.
Mrs. Berry, a long-standing TFCU member and Sageland Elementary teacher, donated 1,200 books to the cause.

In total, 215 TFCU employees collected 6,690 books for the young patients at El Paso Children’s Hospital and University Medical Center, an average of 31 books per employee.
