First Community Credit Union partnered with Victory Christian School to help support FCCU’s first quarter charity, Project Ignite Light.

FCCU employees Ally Nill, Amy Rowell, Ashley Stringer, Cali Sailer, Janna Bergstedt, Mona Elsner, Becky Pergotski and Sharon Dunaway visited Victory Christian School on March 17 and partnered with their students and staff to create fleece-tie blankets that will be donated to Project Ignite Light. Each blanket must be 1 1/2 yards each side and consist of two pieces of fabric - one solid and one patterned.

Victory Christian School wanted to help FCCU with its fundraising efforts because what better way to show support than children helping children. Being the hands and feet of Christ is what Victory Christian School wants to instill in its students and this was a great opportunity for them to practice that philosophy, the school said. This also goes hand in hand with FCCU’s message of “people helping people.”

Project Ignite Light is a faith-based organization that provides children with items needed when examined at local Children's Advocacy Centers around the United States for sexual abuse, physical abuse or neglect. Jamestown native Pebbles Thompson founded the organization in 2008 which functions out of the old Barnes County North School in Rogers.
