BHFCU staff-led giving program raises $3,600 in October

RAPID CITY, SD (November 27, 2023)Black Hills Federal Credit Union (BHFCU) believes it is  imperative to support the passions of its staff. That’s why they promote the staff-led Community  Action Team (CAT) program and are proud to share that staff raised $3,600 in October. 

Last month, the CAT program supported organizations focused on kids’ health and wellness.  The effort raised money for the Children’s Miracle Network, the Ronald McDonald House, the  Children’s Home Society, and the Autism Society of the Black Hills. 

CAT co-chairs organized two ways for staff to get involved. On a blustery mid-October day, they  hosted a chili and soup eat-in. With a dozen types of soup to choose from, no one was left  hungry and lots of money was raised. 

“What I love most about the CAT program is the opportunity it provides staff to collect donations  for causes they are passionate about,” said Connie Price, Contact Center Manager. “When my  family needed support, the Autism Society of the Black Hills was there for us. To have my  workplace now help me pay it forward to the next family who needs that support is priceless.” 

And at the end of the month, staff participated in a Halloween Costume Contest. The competition was stiff, but three winners were selected by their peers. While they now hold bragging rights for the next year, the four benefiting organizations were the real winners. BHFCU presented each with a $900 donation. 

BHFCU supports community needs through corporate contributions, employee fundraisers, and  donations from members and community supporters to the Black Hills FCU Charitable Fund, a  501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
