Black Hills FCU Employees Give Back this January
Giving back to their community, employees and members at Black Hills Federal Credit Union came together to contribute food and more than $1520 to local nonprofits and charitable causes this January.
During their recent Community Action Team project to benefit Special Olympics South Dakota, employees raised $1,000 through a donation-based eat-in and jeans day fundraiser. The funds will support the organization’s efforts to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities across South Dakota.
“The strength, bravery, and joy these athletes display every time they step on the court or field is truly a testament to their capabilities and Special Olympics South Dakota’s efforts,” said Heidi Bulman, chair of BHFCU’s Special Olympics South Dakota Community Action Team project. “With this donation, we’re working to ensure these courageous athletes have the resources they need to achieve their personal and physical fitness goals, while also promoting equality, respect and acceptance in our communities.”
Employees also donated $520 to the Community Reward Fund, which provides monetary incentives for tips that lead to convictions in major crimes in the Rapid City area. They also contributed hundreds of canned goods and non-perishable items to South Dakota School of Mines and Technology’s 10th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Food Drive.
This January, BHFCU’s employees and members are participating in Community Action Team projects to benefit the Tough Enough to Wear Pink, Fork Real Café 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.
