Getting down and dirty to make a difference here
Community is in our DNA. While Presidents Day is a day off for most financial institutions, OCCU employees were out in the community, volunteering with passion. For our seventh annual Volunteer Day we celebrated by giving back to those in need by serving and actively contributing to communities where our members and employees live. Whether it’s clearing invasive species, dismantling old computers, cleaning up our parks, or painting local schools, every project works to improve the quality of our community.
For our seventh annual Volunteer Day at Oregon Community Credit Union, our employees got together to give back big.
