Black Hills FCU Raises Funds for Nonprofits this August
Committed to improving lives, employees at Black Hills Federal Credit Union raised more than $3,000 for a variety of charitable causes and nonprofit organizations in their community this August.
During their recent Community Action Team project for the Alzheimer’s Association, employees raised $1,200 through a donation-based eat-in and jeans day fundraiser. The funds will assist the organization’s awareness efforts, support programs and research initiatives in the Rapid City and Sioux Falls areas.
“I am so proud of our team’s dedication to this great project,” said Ashlie Matthews. “Whether we’re fundraising or participating in our local Walk to End Alzheimer’s events, we’re passionate about helping individuals in our community who’ve been affected by this terrible disease reclaim their future.”
Additionally, employees raised more than $500 for their annual Troops Care Package Project, which provides snacks and other items to South Dakota service members deployed overseas. They also donated more than $500 for the Pierre Area Referral Services’ BackPack Program and raised $800 for Youth Scholarship Programs at the Custer and Rapid City YMCAs.
This September, BHFCU’s employees and members are participating in Community Action Team projects to benefit the American Heart Association, the Cornerstone Rescue Mission and more.
With support from its members, BHFCU’s employee-led Community Action Team contributes to and volunteers with more than 60 local, charitable organizations and causes through the Black Hills FCU Charitable Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, every year.
