Park View Federal Credit Union builds on tradition of Veteran’s Day community service
HARRISONBURG, VA (November 16, 2016) — Members and employees of Park View Federal Credit Union gathered to serve the community on Veteran’s Day. In its fourth year, PVFCU’s Community Connection continued to show PVFCU’s vision of “Neighbors Serving Neighbors®” by volunteering over 320 hours in appreciation of the men and women who have served at home and abroad.
The volunteers stacked and split wood, sorted books and donations, provided child care, cleaned, and provided other help as needed. “Our motto is Neighbors Serving Neighbors® and what better way to demonstrate that than to get out with our neighbors and serve along with them,” said Molly Boese, PVFCU HR Assistant and one of the organizers of the event.
Volunteers served at Tried and True, Family Life Resource Center, Gift and Thrift, Brethren Woods Camp, Patchwork Pantry, Crossroads Valley Brethren Mennonite Heritage Center, Community Preschool, EMU Early Learning Center, Explore More Discovery Museum, First Step, Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community, and Highland Retreat.
The Community Connection was sponsored in part by Eastern Mennonite University, The Valley Roots Team (Kline May Realty), Keens Storage Trailers and Containers, Design Concrete Builders, Solace Therapeutic Massage, and Friendly City Food Co-op. These member businesses and partner organizations donated time and resources to work alongside PVFCU and give back to the community.
Earlier this year PVFCU won a credit union community service award due to the success of last year’s Community Connection Day. The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award for the state of Virginia was given to PVFCU for the second year in a row. “We are very excited to have this event as part of the culture of our credit union,” said John Beiler, President and CEO. “This recognition encourages us to keep improving and growing this community event.”
