American Heritage Federal Credit Union Assists Family with Three Adopted Sets of Twins

Print Email RSS Comments

Philadelphia, PA— Hythem and Lisa Salem are two very deserving parents. When they discovered their 6-year-old twins, who they had adopted from Russia, had a set of 10-year-old twin sisters and 11-year-old twin brothers, they did all they could to reunite their children with their siblings.


Employees of the Horsham branch of American Heritage Federal Credit Union present Hythem Salem with a check for his family. From left to right are: Branch Manager Aaliyah Caesar, Salem, Celeste Tompkins and Katherine Beakley.

American Heritage FCU wanted to help, and started by setting up a fund for donations to the family. But American Heritage employees wanted to do more. On Friday, May 7, 2004, American Heritage Federal Credit Union presented the Salem family with a $1,000 check to help offset the costs of adopting four more children from Russia. The money was donated by employees who "purchased" the privilege of dressing down on Mondays in the month of April. The Salems, of Telford, Pa, already provide a loving home for twins Sophia and Joseph. The family must fly to Russia two more times, once to meet their new children, and once to bring them home. American Heritage is helping its member, Hythem, and his family, with the expensive of flying to and from Russia, paying to adopt the children, and raising these six very special brothers and sisters.

Donations may be made to the Salem Unite A Family Fund account at American Heritage Federal Credit Union, Commonwealth Corporate Center, 101 Tournament Drive, Horsham, Pa, 19044.

American Heritage Federal Credit Union provides affordable financial services to over 70,500 member-owners. Founded in 1948, the credit union now has 14 offices in Bucks and Montgomery Counties and Philadelphia.
