Credit Union West provides free meals to hospital staff

GLENDALE, AZ (June 25, 2020) — As part of their Employees CARE program, Credit Union West employees recently donated a portion of their pay to show their appreciation for the health care workers at Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s Prescott Valley Campus. More than 300 meals were provided at no cost to hospital staff.

“I’m continually amazed by the generosity of our employees,” stated Karen Roch, President/CEO of Credit Union West. “Our team members wanted to show a display of gratitude for the amazing health care heroes that are keeping us safe and are always there for us in trying times like these.”

At the time of this release, Credit Union West’s employees have provided over 825 meals to health care workers across Maricopa and Yavapai counties. These meals are covered by the use of employee donations from the credit union’s Employees CARE program, which provides support to local communities throughout the year.

“On behalf of the entire YRMC family, I want to thank Credit Union West for thoughtfully recognizing our health care heroes who continue to meet the daily challenges presented by COVID-19,” said Frank Almendarez, Chief Administrative Officer at Yavapai Regional Medical Center. “Our dedicated team has responded admirably to the call to serve and we are inspired by the generous support from our patients, their families and our neighbors throughout our community.”
