MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (6/5/13)--The staff at Mid-Atlantic Corporate FCU in Middletown, Pa., has been busy this year modeling the credit union community's "people-helping people" spirit through community outreach initiatives.
"Helping people and their communities is at the heart of credit unions' mission, and it's integral to the credit union brand," said Jay Murray, president/CEO of Mid-Atlantic Corporate. "At our corporate, we offer a wide variety of ways our employees can get involved, but they need little encouragement."
To better organize the activities, the senior team created a community involvement committee for 2013 to develop new ways for the staff to assist in the community.
Among the corporate's 2013 outreach activities organized by the committee are:
This month, the corporate will support Children's Miracle Network (CMN), a key national charity of the credit union movement.
Saturday, employees answered phones and accepted donations at the local CMN Telethon, where the corporate presented its 2012 proceeds in a $15,300 check. On June 15, staff will volunteer and others will run in the Hershey Company's 10th Annual Chocolate Miracle 5K Race to benefit CMN. Also, the corporate's annual golf tournament to support CMN is scheduled for June 20.
