Greenville Federal Credit Union to announce recipients of $50,000 in community grants on Nov. 16.
GREENVILLE, SC (November 6, 2018) — Greenville Federal Credit Union will announce the five, $10,000 recipients of its Thanks and Giving Grants Program (T&GG) on Friday, November 16, 2018. The T&GG presentation will take place at 11:15 AM at the credit union’s Wade Hampton Branch location ahead of its 50th Anniversary lunch celebration.
Greenville Federal Credit Union created T&GG as part of its 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2018. The program was announced to credit union members during their 50th Annual Meeting. The purpose of T&GG was to identify and provide funding support for community based 501C3 organizations that promote youth, education, community and economic assistance or relief in local areas across Greenville County.
“The credit union received its official charter and opened for business on November 22, 1968. In 2018, that date just so happens to be Thanksgiving day, which is why our Anniversary theme is ‘Celebrating 50 Years with Thanks and Giving.’ One the credit union’s missions has been to give back to the Greenville community by providing affordable financial services to the people we serve. It’s the very reason the credit union was founded.” said President Paul Hughes. “We are very excited to celebrate our history by making a significant and lasting investment back into the community where we have called home for 50 years.”
The 50th Anniversary Final Food Truck Friday Celebration will begin at 11 AM and last through 2 PM. The T&GG recipients announcement and special remarks will begin at 11:15 AM. Lunch will follow.
