Community Choice Credit Union Spring Arbor Member Center Manager Bridget Simone joins us on the show to share the amazing generosity her credit union has displayed to the community of Jackson, Michigan, via its annual "Give Big Month" from the credit union's Community Choice Foundation.
Bridget tells us the Community Choice Foundation lives the credit union philosophy of people helping people through community grants, scholarships, and volunteerism, enabling it and credit union team members to "give big" to its local Michigan communities.
Here's a taste of what Community Choice did for Jackson this year:
Kids Talk Stuffed Toys
Meals at the Jackson Interfaith Shelter
Building Wheel Chair Ramps
“The Give Big culture runs deep at Community Choice Credit Union as we all put the philosophy of giving big into action,” said Robert Bava, Community Choice Credit Union CEO. “We launched the Community Choice Foundation and our Give Big philosophy in 2008 as a way to give back to members and neighbors, and it has become a way of life for us. Since 2008, more than 20,000 volunteer hours and more than $1 million has been donated to charitable programs in Michigan.”
Check it out and let us know your thoughts -- as well as what you're credit union's "give back" story is to benefit your surrounding communities.
