BHFCU Gives Back - August 2023
At BHFCU, our commitment to improving lives in the communities we serve is as strong as ever. Learn more about the positive things our team accomplished in August.
Focusing on Supporting Schools
In 2023, we are refocusing our staff-led charitable giving program, the Community Action Team (CAT.) Each month follows a theme with multiple organizations benefiting. In August, we focused on fundraising for our 27th Annual School Support Drive. Check out what we accomplished!
Going Once, Going Twice
Our internal School Support Drive Auction is an annual favorite around the credit union. Thanks to donations from area businesses, we assembled 41 auction packages and raised $4,288.
Sweet Treats for Supplies
Colonial House donated 144 of their delicious caramel rolls for our annual sale, benefiting the School Support Drive. This year, we hand-delivered these sweet treats to our staff, who helped raise $744.
School Support Drive Success
This year, we shifted our annual school giving effort, putting the power into the hands of educators by providing monetary donations alongside some supplies. We donated $23,000 and 23,300 school supplies to 80 schools and educational organizations.
Keeping the Rocketship in Spearfish
Going hand-in-hand with our CAT efforts in August, we also made a $1,000 donation to the Spearfish Rocketship Park. The effort to renovate the beloved playset is sure to bring joy to future generations of Spearfish-area kids.
Supporting Maui Fire Relief
We believe in the credit union philosophy to support our peers. We took action to help in the Maui relief effort by donating $10,000 to the National Credit Union Foundation’s CUAid disaster relief program.
Supporting Seniors in Custer
We recently made a $500 donation to the Custer Senior Center to help support building repairs. We’re thrilled to assist organizations in the communities we serve.
