Each year the employees at DFCU 'adopt' families in need during the holiday season. Five families were selected from Old River Elementary and Lewis Elementary to participate in DFCU's annual Adopt-A-Family Reception. DFCU's good friend, Santa Claus, paid a visit and helped pass out gifts such as clothes, blankets, toys, a microwave, and even a Christmas tree to the families. Santa Claus also presented each child with a cookie to do his annual cookie toast.
