Black Hills FCU Employees Gives Back to their Community this September
Working to make a difference, Black Hills Federal Credit Union’s employees donated time and money to a variety of projects in their communities this September, including Adopt-A-Highway, the American Heart Association, Cornerstone Rescue Mission, and more.
As part of their annual Community Action Team project for the South Dakota Department of Transportation, BHFCU’s employees volunteered to clean up trash along a portion of Highway 44, just west of Rapid City.
“This is a great opportunity for our employees to get together and give back to the communities we serve in a very meaningful way,” said Patty Mogensen, chair of the Community Action Team Project. “In just a few hours we’re able to keep our communities looking great.”
Employees also donated $615 to the Children’s Miracle Network at Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls as part of Miracle Jeans Day, a national, credit union-organized fundraising campaign supporting CMN Hospitals. They also raised more than $500 for the American Heart Association and donated 19 units of blood during a recent drive for Vitalant, formerly United Blood Services.
This October, BHFCU’s employees and members are participating in Community Action Team projects to benefit the Cornerstone Rescue Mission, State Veterans Homes, Diabetes Inc., 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.
