Today, we are making a donation of $3251.62 with funds collected through RTN GoodWorks Foundation to the Greater Houston Community Foundation to help support their Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Every day, as a Credit Union we exist help our members manage and improve their financial lives. And, we have a social mission, with charitable giving and community service as our core values.
This translates into supporting local community projects and initiatives. A quick overview of charitable giving and community involvement in 2017 includes:
–In September, we gave $22,039 to help homeless teens and families in Danvers, Waltham and Boston. These funds were raised through our annual Walk Home 5K walk to help homeless teens and families.
–Monthly Blue Jeans Days provide RTN employees the opportunity to wear jeans to work for a charitable donation, with funds collected and donated to promote the credit union industry with legislators and governmental bodies. In addition, RTN is an active participant in Cooperative Credit Union Association collection drives and community efforts throughout the year.
–Our Employee Community Outreach Committee supports several non-profit organizations and charities in local communities through personal donations and contributions of their free time.
Charitable giving by RTN so far this year has totaled nearly $60,000. We are proud to work collaboratively with members, sponsor groups and our surrounding communities through financial support and volunteer participation in many ways, large and small. We thank you for your participation and support.
