Centris Federal Credit Union Hosts First Corporate Day of Service
Centris Federal Credit Union (www.centrisfcu.org) was pleased to participate in their first of four Centris Corporate Days of Service on Tuesday, March 13. Fifty employees from branches in North Platte, Grand Island, and Omaha, Nebraska and Council Bluffs, Iowa volunteered their time and talents at seven non-profits in the communities that Centris serves.
The non-profit organizations that benefitted from Centris’ volunteers are: Food Bank For The Heartland, QLI (Quality Living, Inc.), Together Omaha in Omaha; Central Nebraska Humane Society in Grand Island; North Platte Animal Shelter in North Platte; and Midlands Humane Society and New Visions in Council Bluffs.
“The service initiative began this year as an effort to get more Centris employees engaged in the community and introduce them to the benefits of volunteering,” said Dawn Gonzales, vice president, community development. Gonzales said that all staff has been encouraged to choose one of the four quarterly days to serve their community. “Each employee may participate in up to 8 hours of community service during the work day in any of the partnerships that Centris has established,” she said. “We are working to create a culture of giving amongst our employees and are excited to see the results of our efforts.”
