New Horizons Credit Union raises $1,000 for area animal shelters

MOBILE, AL (December 18, 2020) — Giving back to the community is important for New Horizons Credit Union in Mobile, AL. New Horizons’ employees raised funds during 2020 for select charities which included local animal shelters such as the local Animal Rescue Foundation, Mobile County Animal Shelter, Daphne Animal Shelter, and Clarke County Animal Shelter each getting a portion of the $1,000 raised.

New Horizons Credit Union employees vote annually on which charities they would like to support as part of the team’s Horizons Helping Hands community outreach program. The fundraising primarily stems from special jeans days to other internal activities conducted to help generate the fund-raising spirit throughout the Credit Union.

Local animal shelter swere selected because these organizations are sometimes forgotten about and need support just like any other organization – especially during the recent pandemic.  However, the Horizons Helping Hands community outreach program also supported St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and The Penelope House during 2020.

Our New Horizons Credit Union Team is responsible for making this donation possible. I am so proud to be part of such a giving organization which continues to support the community even through these uncertain COVID times,” said New Horizons Credit Union President/CEO, Edith Franklin.
