At AACFCU, #WeGiveBack is more than a hashtag, it’s ingrained in our culture. As we work to make life better for others, we make our communities stronger all while creating meaningful, lasting, positive change.
AACFCU recently donated school supplies to 12 local organizations throughout our service areas to assist students and teachers during the 2018-2019 school year! Donations were made by AACFCU members and employees as part of our commitment to give back to the community. This year marks our seventh year hosting a school donation drive at each of our 21 branches.
Donations were given to the following organizations:
AACFCU donated $17,155 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) after a company-wide fundraising campaign. Because of the kindness of AACFCU employees and members, $10,155 was raised in donations while AACFCU donated an additional $7,000 to CFF.
AACFCU is a sponsor of the CFF Great Strides Walks in Dothan and Mobile each year, and AACFCU employees coordinate fundraisers at each location.
Kathy Scarbrough, AACFCU vice president of marketing, said, “Our employees get excited and work hard every year to put together fun ideas to help raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. If it wasn’t for the generosity of our members and local community a donation like this wouldn’t be possible.”
While AACFCU is known for its community involvement, Credit Union employees are the driving force behind our commitment to volunteer with organizations in the local areas we serve. Last year, our employees volunteered over 1,200 hours at many local organizations! Some organizations we’ve worked with include:
Many organizations benefitted from AACFCU employees and their family members during a variety of volunteer events. We appreciate the opportunity to give back to our communities!
