Winter 2019: Happy New Year!

Steve ElkinsAs we embark on a new year, which also happens to be DCCU’s 60th year of service, it is important to reflect on our history, while also embracing a bright future ahead. In this newly redesigned issue of Member Matters, you will notice one theme – giving. The cooperative principle of people helping people was essential when DuPont plant workers founded our credit union in 1959 and today, those values are stronger than ever.

We continually seek opportunities to help make a lasting difference in the Shenandoah Valley. While we understand that serving our members’ financial needs is our primary objective, we also recognize that giving of our time and resources helps strengthen our community and creates meaningful engagement for our employees.

Giving has become such a vital part of our culture and I am proud of how our employees have embraced it. Through last year’s successful Corporate Charity and United Way fundraising campaigns, our employees helped several organizations further their mission. We closed out the year with strong outreach efforts, which helped make the holidays a little brighter for children and seniors in need.

We are also coming off a great year when it comes to volunteering. Our employees spent thousands of hours throughout the year helping to make a positive impact. The Valley is fortunate to have so many local non-profits contributing meaningful services to those in need. It is humbling to spend time volunteering with these organizations while learning about what they do and how they help make our community better.

As we look ahead to the future, we never want to lose sight of our purpose. We embrace the responsibility of caring for the well-being of our members while also helping to improve the financial health of our community. No matter when you joined our cooperative along this 60 year journey, we value your membership and appreciate your continued support.
