The holidays have come and gone, but credit unions across the country provided holiday cheer that continues well beyond.

Through bake sales, fundraisers, and volunteering, credit unions showcased the credit union difference this year—no doubt enough for Santa to proclaim the movement "nice."

Here's a sampling of the memories the credit union movement created during the holiday season.

Global CU

Toys for Tots

Global Credit Union, a $353 million asset institution in Spokane, Wash., collected $169.80 and more than 850 toys for the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program.

The staff of Global Credit Union also encouraged donations from members and employees by participating in an internal contest to see which department and branch could generate the most toy donations.

After collecting the total toy count, the winning departments were lending services and special credits.
