Elevations Credit Union receives Corporate Impact Award at Star Spangled Gala benefiting Healing Warriors Program

BOULDER, CO (October 29, 2019) — Elevations Credit Union was honored with the 2019 Corporate Impact Award, presented at the Star Spangled Gala benefiting Healing Warriors Program. The event took place on Saturday, October 19  at Joy Burns Center in Denver to celebrate our veterans and the nonprofit’s work to provide non-narcotic therapies.

Healing Warriors Program’s Corporate Impact Award is given to organizations who demonstrate community service leadership, integrity and commitment to values through their actions in service to our community.

“We are honored to recognize Elevations Credit Union with our Corporate Impact Award,” said Ana Pallés Yelen, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Healing Warriors Program. “The credit union has been a true and valued supporter of our organization. We so appreciated their time and in-kind contributions— each time we are able to utilize these types of donations, we put further resources toward those who need it most.”

Earlier this year, Elevations Credit Union supported the growth of Healing Warriors Program and its new clinic at 1044 West Drake Road in Fort Collins by providing nearly 100 volunteer hours to outfit the new space with furniture, artwork and IT equipment—all donated in-kind from Elevations and totaling an estimated $25,000.

“The work of Healing Warriors Program is phenomenal,” said Dennis Paul, VP of Community Affairs for Elevations. “The stars literally aligned for Elevations to have the resources and infrastructure available to make an impact on the Fort Collins clinic. Elevations is thrilled with the outcome and proud of the critical work that Healing Warriors Program is doing with our service members.”
