KENNESAW – December 29, 2021 – Credit Union of Georgia employees volunteered to ring the bell for The Salvation Army at Kroger in Kennesaw for an entire week. Their efforts and Doing the Most Good spirit paid off as they raised over $2,800! Along with this total, the Credit Union contributed an additional $2,500 bringing the grand total of funds raised to help individuals and families in the community to over $5,300!
Through the challenges that 2020 and 2021 have brought including the economic fallout of the pandemic, millions were pushed into poverty for the first time. Communities that were already vulnerable were hit even harder due to the ongoing pandemic. The Salvation Army helps communities, near and far, fight poverty, addiction, and homelessness. The money raised is given back to the community where it is received, providing help, hope and healing to our neighbors in need. Credit Union of Georgia employees were grateful for the opportunity to be able to give back to their community and help the Salvation Army give to those in need.
“We understand our community needs us more than ever. The Credit Union is choosing to spread joy and give back during these uncertain times! We are encouraging not only employees to give back, but also educating our members as well. Together we can make our community strong,” said Tom McNutt, Vice President of IT and The Salvation Army Marietta Corps, Board Member.
