On October 8th First Credit Union & Insurance and Westview Agencies will be closing at 2.p.m. to enable all 140 employees to make a positive difference by volunteering in the communities that they serve.

The purpose of our organization is to strengthen the well-being of our members-clients and make a meaningful community impact. To express our commitment to our community, on October 8th we’re closing all of our credit union and insurance branches early to enable our employees to volunteer in their community. This is an opportunity for us to lend a hand and show our gratitude to some of the remarkable non-profit organizations who work every day for the benefit of others; we’re calling this our Community Impact Day.”

This October, credit unions around the world will celebrate the 67th International Credit Union Day. This year’s theme, “People Helping People,” embraces the longstanding credit union philosophy and is the inspiration for First Credit Union’s Community Impact Day. Credit unions exist to serve their members, not to make a profit. Our ‘people-first’ philosophy impels credit unions and their employees to get involved in their community and support worthwhile causes. Every year we give back thousands of dollars to our communities through scholarships, donations and sponsorships – Community Impact Day is a way for us to give back by volunteering our time.

First Credit Union & Insurance and Westview Agencies are inviting members and clients to join them in branch on October 8th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for refreshments and to find out more about the projects their local branches will be undertaking in the afternoon.

  1. I love that your organizations are getting physically involved as an alternative to redistributing monies in the community. The impacts will be firsthand! In a world where time is increasingly limited – the direct community involvement will surely be appreciated. I hope this blog covers some of the employees experiences and projects they get involved with. Looking forward to hearing more!
