New Britain, CT – December 9, 2010 – The McCue Mortgage Company and the Connecticut Mortgage Bankers Association (CMBA) teamed up to gather hundreds of toys in support of the Salvation Army’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive in New Britain. Together, the two organizations helped make the holidays a bit more joyful for many families in New Britain.
According to Major Stanley Newton, minister at the Salvation Army in New Britain, over 300 applications were received this year for support during the holidays, with most of those applications from families with children. Major Newton estimates this year’s toy drive will touch over 1000 area children. “The reality is there are children who wake up on Christmas morning having nothing under their tree,” said Major Newton. “It is support from companies like McCue Mortgage and the CMBA that make the difference. We are just the facilitators. We could not do it without the support of local businesses and their employees.”
“McCue Mortgage is committed to helping the communities we serve,” said Vice President Katherine A. McCue. “We are thrilled with our employees’ generosity for the Salvation Army Toy Drive. The response from the membership of the Connecticut Mortgage Bankers Association has helped make this event an even greater success.”
