Kinetic Credit Union holds 'Christmas in July' event

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Kinetic Credit Union is holding their second annual Christmas in July event.

They do it in July every year because people everywhere are always doing things around Christmas time.

Kinetic gave a check for $700 to Neighborhood works, and they gave items to the Valley Rescue Mission, Girls Inc., Santa's Castle, Homeless Network and Orchard View.

“We celebrate Christmas in July because during the month of December lots of organizations are donating to various charities, but we are of the mind people are hungry throughout the year not just in December so that's how Christmas in July came about,” Wanda Rutledge said, Community Relations Vice President of Kinetic Credit Union. 

The employees and families at the Credit Union have been collecting the items throughout the year to give to the organizations.
