PARAMUS, NJ — Greater Alliance Hopes and Dreams Foundation partnered with the Paramus Police Department for their Toys for Tots collection. Employees of Greater Alliance Federal Credit Union donated toys while the foundation donated $300 to purchase more.
Based in Bergen County, Greater Alliance Hopes and Dreams Foundation for Children is a state-registered non-profit dedicated to supporting programs, activities, and research aimed at helping less fortunate and handicapped children and families through grants, donations, and scholarships.
The organizations they support provide services in the areas where the credit union has branches in Hackensack, Paramus and Paterson.
In 2019, the foundation donated over $31,000 to various charities. One of the highlights of the year is giving to Pony Power Therapies, a unique summer camp that allows children with special needs a summer escape with a one-of-a-kind experience.
The foundation also donates to Children’s Aid and Family Services in Paramus and to the Bill McKoy Foundation in Paterson to give out toys during the holidays. The funds are raised through the annual golf outing and by involvement of credit union employees.
Credit Union employees and members of the board of the foundation volunteer their time in the community. They volunteered at a local veterans’ home, organized a family volunteer day and participated in charity walks throughout the area.
