SODUS, N.Y., November 24, 2023—This holiday season, Reliant Credit Union is spreading cheer by helping organizations throughout our community. Each branch is supporting a local nonprofit by collecting goods and gifts, making monetary and item donations, and/or volunteering their time.

“During the season of giving, we’re reminded of the profound strength found in our communities. At Reliant, our ‘people helping people’ philosophy is the foundation of our values,” said Reliant Credit Union’s President & CEO, Pamela Heald. “Each act of kindness, no matter how small, contributes to a brighter and kinder community. We encourage anyone who is able to join us in making a difference this holiday season.”
