#32 - DE Day of Service (& More) with GECU
6 days ago
On this episode, we talk about some interesting community outreach inspired by our Credit Union Development Education (DE) Program.
To celebrate the 2nd DE Day of Service recently, GECU in El Paso, Texas, donated enough food to feed 100 local families in conjunction with the grand opening of the food pantry at the Lower Dyer Community Center. This expanded support was part of their efforts to include the 12 development issues – such as hunger - discussed during DE Training into their charitable strategy.
You’ll hear from Ruby Alvarez, Community Development Manager at GECU, about not only the DE Day of Service, but their in-school branches, free tax preparation (VITA program), partnerships, Life Simulations for employees and much more.
