“Impact Day is the perfect example of what City & County Credit Union strives to accomplish everyday – actively empower our members, in and outside of the credit union,” Patrick Pierce, CEO/President, explained. “By spending the day out in the community, we are able to go beyond serving our member’s financial needs and work towards building a stronger, more resilient community.’
