DCECU employees help build home, clean up litter during a pair of local volunteer projects
MIDLAND, MI (May 17, 2017) — May has been a busy month of community involvement for staff members at Midland-based Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union, who recently participated in two different volunteer projects: Midland County Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Week and an Adopt-A-Street cleanup project.
Habitat for Humanity Women Build Week
On May 9 and 10, a total of 20 DCECU employees served as volunteers for Midland County Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Week, an annual event that empowers women to serve as housing construction volunteers – a Habitat for Humanity volunteer role in which women typically are significantly underrepresented, according to the organization.
In addition to providing a crew of volunteers, DCECU also served as a T-shirt sponsor for the event, which spanned the entire week of May 8 through 12.
Adopt-A-Street Boulevard Cleanup
On May 16, eight DCECU employees cleaned litter from nearly a mile of the boulevard area near the credit union – between East Lyon and East Patrick roads, from Pine Street to Washington Street, including around the bicycle and pedestrian path that runs through the boulevard – through the Adopt-A-Street program.
“DCECU is proud of our employees’ willingness to answer the call to help improve our community,” said DCECU President/CEO Dennis Hanson. “The 20-plus employees who volunteered to assist with these two projects are shining examples of the credit union’s commitment to giving back to the community at large.”
