Yelm’s TwinStar Credit Union gave back to the community by donating teddy bears and other stuffed animals to S.E. Thurston Fire Authority’s “Stuff the Fire Truck” toy drive. These plush toys will be given out throughout the holiday season to put a smile on children’s faces. These toys will also be used to comfort children who are involved in emergency situations.
