Your NCCYou in the CommunitySee our latest adventures below.
People helping people is the credit union message and we strongly believe at NCCYou that our community and charity work is important. Things have looked a little different the past year without the capability of doing as many on-site charity events. However, we are always looking for ways to help and were able to do some fun things…
Monday, October 11 was CU Forward Day- a day where credit unions get together to give back to their communities. We chose to help out at the Lyric Center for the Arts in Virginia and we did some cleaning and organizing, as well as made a donation. They are in need of funds to install a sprinkler system so they can be up to code and continue spreading creativity and joy. You can find them online at www.lyriccenteronline.org
NCCYou was a proud sponsor of the John Urick Junior Golf Tournament and over 80 kids attended! Our own Jess’s Carson and his friend Jordan were part of the gang.
Walk for Animals 2021 was a blast! The NCCYou Team had 6 of our dogs on the walk and everyone had a great time helping raise money and awareness for Animal Allies!
Adopt A Highway clean-up 2021 was a success! Two sides of a (long) mile, 30 bags of trash, lots of laughs.
We called for donations for Second Harvest Food Bank and our members really stepped up! With a $500 match from NCCYou, and we were able to donate $4,000 to help them fight hunger!!
We “adopted” a bald eagle at the Great Lakes Aquarium to help support their mission of education and care for the animals. Earnie was certainly excited to know we helped out one of his buddies, “Bogey.”
The NCCYou staff makes a small donation to our “jeans day fund” to wear jeans on Fridays, and the money is used for local charities at the end of the year. This year we decided to make a donation of handmade blankets and gift cards to Safe Haven Shelter (based on their wishlist) and money to Advocates for Family Peace. Both organizations provide help and services to families that are displaced by domestic violence and abuse. We hope we were able to make the Holidays a little brighter for some local families this year.
In October 2020, we did our annual fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness. This year we had NCCYou masks made with a pink logo and sold them with all proceeds going to Circle of Hope.
