CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union gave back to the community in January as part of its “One for All” commitment to service.
“People Helping People” is the principle foundation of CommonWealth One’s core values and is the cornerstone of the credit union movement. This philosophy has shaped the way we do business.
Members of our Board and staff volunteer for reading programs and teaching seminars at local schools and community centers, raise money for children’s hospitals and cancer research, and serve food to families in need.
In January, CommonWealth One teamed up with James Madison University’s College of Business to host the first “One for All” Day of Service on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day, Jan. 21. At the event, CommonWealth One collected donations of winter coats and non-food items for families in need.
For those who could not donate on that day, all CommonWealth One branches in Virginia and Washington, D.C. collected a variety of school supplies to support teachers in our communities, most of whom spend their own money to supply their students. Our Harrisonburg Regional Branch also collected new and gently used winter coats and jackets, and personal hygiene items.
CommonWealth One will continue to contribute to the community throughout the year. Keep an eye on the credit union’s website for opportunities to give back.
