Redwood Credit Union contributes to record year for SF AIDS Walk
RCU Supports San Francisco Event for Tenth Consecutive Year
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (July 31, 2014) — Redwood Credit Union (RCU) doubled its support this year as a longtime sponsor of AIDS Walk San Francisco, helping to raise more than $2.3 million for HIV and AIDS programs and services.
The credit union and its staff donated a combined $5,100 in 2014, along with volunteer time from staff, friends and families at the AIDS Walk event held July 20 in San Francisco. RCU joined the likes of Levi Strauss & Co., Walgreens, Hewlett Packard and Bloomberg in increasing their support in 2014.
“Our roots in San Francisco have only grown deeper since we first came to the community in 2000,” said Jacob Roberts, San Francisco Area Manager for RCU. “Our longtime support of the AIDS Walk stems from our mission and culture of ‘people helping people’.”
RCU and its employees have contributed over $25,000 since the Credit Union became a formal sponsor of the event in 2005, with more than 200 RCU volunteers taking part over the past 10 years. Funds raised through the AIDS Walk will go to support 43 organizations throughout the Bay Area.
