Reflecting on 2018 DCCU giving initiatives
Giving has become an integral part of the culture at DCCU. Each year, our employees select local organizations to support through our annual Corporate Charity campaign. For 2018, employees decided to focus their fundraising efforts to benefit the youth in our communities. A total of $12,200 was distributed to Boys & Girls Clubs in Augusta and Harrisonburg, the Lexington Office on Youth, and KidzRec in Woodstock. Our employees also volunteered 260 hours with the Boys & Girls Club and held supply drives for the Lexington Office on Youth and KidzRec.
For the second half of the year, employees shifted their focus to the United Way. Employees organized various fundraisers and accepted payroll pledges, which will support United Way offices throughout the Shenandoah Valley.
Holiday giving has also become an annual tradition at DCCU as employees donated gifts to two worthy causes – The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree and Home Instead’s Be a Santa to a Senior programs. Employees adopted 30 seniors and 30 children, providing gifts to those who may not otherwise receive them and helping to make their season a little brighter. In addition, over 200 volunteer hours were spent gift wrapping with each program, bell ringing for the Salvation Army, and participating in holiday parades from Lexington to Woodstock.
