Community

Connecting to community

We’re committed to our members, staff and community. We support organizations that enrich lives in the communities we serve.

Passion meets action

We’re passionate about being active in our community. Giving of our time is a part of the credit union history and our team culture. 

Volunteerism is so important to us that we allow our employees up to 40 hours of paid time to volunteer in the community. During the first week of employment, each new team member volunteers with a local nonprofit.

Our team has a reputation for going above and beyond. We're here to help with rolling up our sleeves to support our communities. We clean, sort, teach and share our career skill sets with nonprofits. 

Here are a few ways our team can volunteer:

  • Assembling meal kits.
  • Choregraphing dances for fundraisers.
  • Cleaning up and maintaining city parks.
  • Lending a hand at food banks.
  • Planting gardens to provide food.
  • Sorting donations at local shelters.
  • Staffing and participating in fundraisers.
