Workers Community Outreach

It would be an understatement to say Workers Credit Union has been busy supporting your communities this summer. With local sponsorships, and donations totaling over $50,000, we have been working for you non-stop! Every summer we make a point to sponsor events that impact, and improve our communities. Summer is the perfect time for ball games, 5K runs, brew fests, cultural events, and raising funds for great causes. Here is a sampling of our busy summer:

First things first, our annual GiveBack program hit a high. Not only do we give members a piece of the pie, we give them the opportunity to donate earned GiveBack dollars to one, two, or three local charities. This year we presented checks totaling over $32,000 to these three charities:

United Way of North Central Massachusetts, Worcester County Food Bank, YWCA Central Mass

We don’t just provide funds, our dedicated Workers staff also put their bodies to the test, and participate in, or volunteer at the events we sponsor:
