KEMBA Roanoke Federal Credit Union supports The Community Christmas Store of the Roanoke Valley.

Salem, VA - KEMBA Roanoke Federal Credit Union, a local, non-profit financial institution located on Main Street in Salem, recently donated $1,052.03 to the Community Christmas Store of the Roanoke Valley.  Since 1993, the Community Christmas Store’s mission has been to assist families in need in a dignified manner during the holiday season.

“We are proud to support the tremendous efforts of the Community Christmas Store to assist those in need in our community,” said Allan Davidson, CEO, KEMBA Roanoke Federal Credit Union.

Each year hundreds of volunteers work tirelessly to create a Christmas spectacular, welcoming pre-qualified families to come shop for their families at no cost. The store is set up in a different location each year, based on availability.  This year’s store will be located at 1469 West Main Street at Spartan Square in Salem.  Community residents can visit the Community Christmas Store of The Roanoke Valley’s facebook page for information on making donations and/or volunteering to work at this year’s store.

 “We are grateful to KEMBA for their generosity, and for their wanting to support The Community Christmas Store’s efforts in the Roanoke Valley,” said Shelia Bartlett, Secretary of The Community Christmas Store.

KEMBA has been partnering with the Community Christmas Store for several years and thanks it’s staff and members for helping to raise awareness and financial support for a great holiday cause.
