Reliant Federal Credit Union was awarded the runner-up Community Impact Award from the Mountain West Credit Union Association (MWCUA) at its annual Star Gala on September 22, 2017. The Community Impact award recognizes credit unions for their commitment to the community and outstanding level of service that demonstrates people helping people. The MWCUA includes credit unions in Wyoming, Arizona, and Colorado.
With Reliant Federal Credit Union’s Good Corporate Citizen Campaign, three community services activities are incorporated - Random Acts of Kindness, Day of Caring, and the Employee Involvement Policy.
“Reliant Federal Credit Union has truly embodied the spirit behind the MWCUA Annual Community Impact Award and demonstrating to the communities they serve people helping people,” said Steve Higginson, President and CEO of Reliant Federal Credit Union. “It is an honor to receive this award for a program we are so deeply committed to in our communities.”
Through Random Acts of Kindness, the communities Reliant FCU serves are treated to unanticipated surprises each month. These acts have included breakfast for emergency fire fighters, free morning coffee at a local bistro, books for the Boys and Girls Club children, preparing a delicious meal for hospice patients families and more. Over the past year, Reliant Federal Credit Union has contributed $12,000 to brighten the day for over 5,600 community members.
Reliant Federal Credit Union began the annual day of caring over 14 years ago when it first closed their branches for a day to serve the community. In 2017, over 40 employees donated an entire day of service to the Habitat for Humanity. Over the years, the annual Day of Caring has helped to organize Special Olympic events, revitalize local parks, and even prepping gardens for a local food bank.
The Employee Community Involvement policy allows each employee of Reliant Federal Credit Union the opportunity to volunteer for a cause of their choice. Whether its driving for Meals on Wheels or becoming an advocate for local foster children, each employee is encouraged and given the opportunity to serve. About Reliant Federal Credit Members:
