First Capital Federal Credit Union employees pitch in at Leg Up Farm

YORK, PA (October 15, 2013) — First Capital Federal Credit Union staff spent Employee Enrichment Day, October 14, 2013, working at Leg Up Farm, a non-profit therapy center for children with disabilities and developmental delays.  The team arrived at Leg Up Farm in the morning and heard from Louie Castriota, President of Leg Up Farm.  He told how the Farm began and his mission to help children.  After his talk, we toured the facility and learned more about how they educate and work with the children.  After the tour, it was down to work!  Some staff helped prepare items for the Silent Auction to be held at the Leg Up Farm Open House on Saturday, October 19, 2013.  Others helped wipe down horse stalls and the wood in the arena, cleaned windows and picked up horse poop in the pastures.  After lunch, the staff was back to work.  We pulled weeds, stained chairs, swept the parking lot, anything that was needed to help beautify the area.  “First Capital FCU may be closed on Columbus Day, but the staff was still hard at work,” said Tara Houser, VP of Marketing.  “We use Columbus Day each year for enrichment whether that’s training, team building, or helping out other businesses in our community.”  What a rewarding day!
