Park Community Credit Union provides transportation to a Lexington non-profit

LOUISVILLE, KY (March 12, 2018) — On March 14th at 10:30am, Park Community Credit Union is scheduled to present the Refuge for Women with a Chrysler minivan.  The presentation will take place at Park Community’s Hamburg branch located at 2217 War Admiral Way in Lexington, KY.

Refuge for Women is a non-profit that provides a safe place for women who have escaped human trafficking or sexual exploitation. They provide counseling, training, and job placement assistance.  Their program is conducted in 3 phases: the first is to stabilize and provide safety to rebuild trust to help with healing, the second is to equip the women with tools, training, and job placement assistance, and the third is an optional program which provides reduced living expenses and additional life skills classes. The van will help relieve some of the organization’s transportation challenges and help further their cause.

Park Community Credit Union has made it a mission to help the communities we serve. The concept to provide vehicles was a suggestion from Park Community’s Executive Vice President, Dave Shadburne.  He stated, “This is just one more way that we can help the community, in addition to helping another worthy organization.” Park Community will be co-branding future vehicles with the Park Community logo and the phrase, “Community Passion in Motion.” The phrase captures the credit union’s desire to help the community and to be a driving force for positive change. It also ties back to the industry wide credit union motto of “People Helping People.”

Not only has Park Community donated over $288,000 for the benefit of multiple charities over the last four years, Park Community offers three co-branded debit cards which benefit Kosair Charities, the Kentucky Humane Society, and the Lexington Humane Society.

The headquarters for Refuge for Women is located on Waller Avenue, in Lexington, KY.
