Black Hills FCU Employees Make a Difference this Holiday Season
In the spirit of the holidays, employees and members at Black Hills Federal Credit Union came together to contribute hundreds of items and donate funds to a variety of charitable causes in their community this December, including the Salvation Army, Lakota Voice Project and more.
During a recent Community Action Team project, BHFCU’s employees collected and donated 151 toys, articles of clothing and more for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. The items will be distributed to underprivileged youth and families over the Christmas holiday.
“We’re proud to be able to partner with the Salvation Army to support families in need this holiday season,” said Stacey Hazelton, chair of BHFCU Community Action Team project to benefit the Salvation Army. “Every child should be able to celebrate the holiday and know that someone is thinking about them.”
Employees also donated $200 to the Lakota Voice Project, which is working to combat the youth suicide epidemic on the Pine Ridge Reservaction. They also raised more than $700 to support Meals on Wheels Western South Dakota’s efforts to provide nutritious meals to home-bound seniors in their community.
This January, BHFCU’s employees and members are participating in Community Action Team projects to benefit the Community Reward Fund, Tough Enough to Wear Pink 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.
