CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union’s support of the community continued growing in April, helping feed the hungry and support healthy living.
The credit union opened the “Orange Wave” in the 2019 Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run and 5K Run-Walk on April 14 in Washington, DC. The 2019 race was the 18th year that credit unions have sponsored the run, which supports the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The credit union also collected donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals from members at its branches prior to the race.
In addition, the CommonWealth One team at the Harrisonburg Regional Branch collected food donations for Mercy House, which provides food, clothes and shelter to homeless families with dependent children in the Harrisonburg region. The food donations were added to the Mercy House pantry, providing food for people in need.
In Alexandria, CommonWealth One collected food donations for a food drive at William Ramsay Elementary School.
These activities continue a long tradition of community service at CommonWealth One. The credit union focuses on “people helping people” far beyond financial education and assistance. From an annual winter coat drive to participating in the Alexandria Day of Service to collecting school supplies for teachers and students, CommonWealth One is in the business of service.
