Florida SECU establishes employee volunteer outreach program
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (10/15/08)--State Employees CU (SECU), Jacksonville, Fla., has made a commitment to increase its involvement in volunteer efforts within its communities and beyond with the establishment of SECU C.A.R.E.S., the credit union’s employee volunteer program. The name, SECU C.A.R.E.S., was developed by credit union staff and stands for “Committed, Able, Resourceful, Employees in Service.” After research into volunteer opportunities within its communities, it was decided that SECU’s first efforts would be centered on a partnership with Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House provides a home for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. SECU C.A.R.E.S. is excited about this partnership and the many volunteer opportunities it will afford staff, the credit union said. The Jacksonville and Raiford SECU staff members recently participated in the Children’s Way 5K Run/Walk. As a further means of raising money for the event, the branches sold sponsor running shoes for one dollar each. The employees and local members are also participating in the Ronald McDonald House beverage pop top collection efforts. The pop tops are recycled for cash to support the house program. SECU’s Tallahassee offices sponsored a pizza and salad night for their local house. The families had pizza and salad waiting for them after a long day at local hospitals. Wish list collection boxes have also been placed in the branches for employees and members to donate needed items for the house. SECU C.A.R.E.S. is off to a great start, and SECU is proud of its staff and their commitment to its members and communities, the credit union said.
