We’re committed to our members, staff and community. We support organizations that enrich lives in the communities we serve.

Passion meets action

We’re passionate about being active in our community. Giving of our time is a part of the credit union history and our team culture.  

Volunteerism is so important to us that we allow our employees up to 40 hours of paid time to volunteer in the community. In 2023 alone, our team volunteered a total of 4,563 hours. 

Team OCCU has a reputation for going above and beyond. We roll up our sleeves to support our communities. We clean and sort goods, teach our communities and share our skill sets with nonprofits. 

Here are a few ways our team volunteers: 

  • Assembling meal kits. 

  • Cleaning up and maintaining city parks. 

  • Improving our neighbors’ financial literacy. 

  • Lending a hand at food banks. 

  • Planting gardens to provide food. 

  • Sorting donations at local shelters. 

  • Staffing and participating in fundraisers.
