Every Presidents’ Day, our employees’ volunteer what is a day off for most financial institutions and go out to serve communities in Oregon. Lovingly known as our Annual Volunteer Day, employees look forward to this day year-round. Giving back is woven into the DNA of OCCU and all of its employees. For our sixth Volunteer Day, we got down and dirty to make a difference, by clearing invasive plant species, dismantling old computers, and cleaning pet kennels.

 

 

For our sixth annual Volunteer Day at Oregon Community Credit Union, our employees got together to give back big.
