Credit Unions Care
As a not-for-profit, member-owned, cooperative financial services institutions, credit unions exist to serve their members, not make a profit. They operate by seven cooperative principles, one of which is Concern for Community. While focusing on member needs, credit unions work for the sustainable development of communities through policies and programs accepted by the members.
Unlike other financial institutions, support of the community is in the collective credit union DNA. Credit unions exist to help people, from the financially well off to those of modest means. Every member counts. Credit union members are fiercely loyal as a result, knowing that their credit union is there for them in bad times, as well as good. The same people-first philosophy causes credit unions and their employees to get involved in community charitable activities and development.
Credit Unions Care is a rallying cry under which credit unions can show this commitment every day in the community or communities they serve. It’s a reminder that caring is what credit unions do best. Check back for upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.
The Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Union has dedicated the credit union philosophy of people helping people. You’ll see this philosophy in action with our community service events and volunteer opportunities.
Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities – Annual School Parties
One of the Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Union’s favorite traditions is returning in 2021. Our annual school party tradition began over 30 years ago at Sam Rosen Elementary (Fort Worth ISD) and has now grown to include Webb Elementary (Arlington ISD). The party day is filled with games, prizes, treats, and of course, pictures with Santa. It is only made possible through the generous contributions of time and money from our credit unions and partners.
We currently need volunteers for the following dates:
Set up day: Wednesday, December 6, 2023 – morning only
Party day: Thursday, December 7, 202 – all day
Contact Brenda Tristan for more details
