Black Hills FCU Donates to Local Nonprofits this June
Committed to improving lives, Black Hills Federal Credit Union’s employees volunteered and raised more than $2,000 through a number of community action team projects this June. Their efforts helped support a variety of local nonprofits, including Black Hills Children’s Home, Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity, Kenadi’s Playground and Feeding South Dakota.
As part of their fundraiser for the Black Hills Children’s Home, employees raised money through concession stand sales during BHFCU’s 29th
Annual Member Auto Sale. In total, they donated $800 to the organization, which provides shelter, education, and nourishment to children and families in need.
“Through this fundraiser, we’re helping to provide vital services for children working to overcome trauma,” said Laura Mallow, chair of BHFCU’s Community Action Team Project to benefit the Black Hills Children’s Home. “We’re grateful for everything this great organization does to encourage positive emotional health and well-being among children, women and families in our community.”
BHFCU’s employees also participated in a build day and raised $600 for Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity, donated $600 toward the Kenadi Jean Weis Foundation’s project for an all-inclusive playground in Spearfish, and sorted and packaged food for Feeding South Dakota.
This July, BHFCU’s employees and members are participating in community action team projects to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network and the United Blood Services.
With support from its members, BHFCU’s employee-led Community Action Team contributes to and volunteers with more than 60 local, charitable organizations throughout the year. You can get involved with and stay up-to-date on all of BHFCU’s current CAT projects by following BHFCU on Facebook.
