Jacksonville, FL (December 19, 2016) – The holiday spirit is in full gear at 121 Financial Credit Unions around Jacksonville. Employees from various 121 Financial locations not only delivered six car loads of paper products, cleaning supplies and non-perishable food items to Gabriel House of Care, but also provided lunch for the guests and donated $2500 to help those who stay there.

“What an incredible group of people,” said Valerie Callahan, Gabriel House executive director. “We never expected car loads of supplies or such a generous donation. 121 Financial has been an outstanding partner in our Chef’s Night In program for several years and have provided many wonderful meals for our guests. We are very appreciative of their continued support.”
