Humanitarian Highlight 3/5/2020: WE GOT THIS!
We are back with a brand new #HumanitarianHighlight! This week, we provided our #CUfamily with many different types of positive acts that credit unions have accomplished. We hope you all love this #HumanitarianHighlight, and please, if you know of any credit union or are a part of a credit union who wants to be part of these blog posts, use the hashtag or contact us via DM on our social media. Happy Thursday!
Want to guess how many employee volunteer hours GCS CU accrued in 2019? Well, GCS CU rounded up a near-total of 1,000 hours through their Caring for our Community Program!
“The Caring for our Community program is an original program that recognizes staff members for their volunteer hours in the community.” GCS Credit Union
Wanting to make a difference in their community, the staff from Reliant Community FCU wore red for an effort to raise awareness on the prevention of heart disease and strokes. Wonderful job, #CUfamily!
The love for this credit union has for their community can clearly be seen. During a weekend, DuGood CU staff volunteered at the Cupid Shuffle by keeping all of the runners hydrated during the event! Way to show your involvement in the community #TeamDUGood!
Enrichment FCU recently made a generous donation to The Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue for an effort to help build a new fox enclosure and also to help any animal that needs care!
Throughout the years, Dow Chemical Employees’ CU has collected extraordinary amounts of 7,110 pounds of canned food donations that were shared with one of the CU’s hunger-relief partners. To continue this effort, the CU was collecting food and personal care items for almost all of February to be donated to Hidden Harvest, which they will then transport the items to one of the many selected organizations.
Keeping the community in mind, Oahe FCU raised $700 from their holiday skip a payment program to be donated to the Oahe YMCA Kid Stop Program.
This incredible credit union awarded a $50,000 check to the Newaygo County Museum and Heritage Center for Your History, Our Legacy’ capital campaign.
