DECATUR, IL (January 15, 2019) — Land of Lincoln Credit Union (LLCU) is pleased to announce that they have achieved a company-wide goal of exceeding 2,000 hours of employee volunteerism in the communities served by LLCU. As of December 31st, LLCU had a total of 2,489 hours volunteered by staff, which is the equivalent of more than 62 work weeks. This was achieved by a staff of around 120 employees.

“Before I officially joined LLCU, this existing volunteerism program was, to me, one of the most appealing facts about LLCU. I’ve never quite seen anything like it. There is no personal agenda, nor is anything expected in return. This spirit of servitude is straight from the heart of each and every one of our employees,” stated Robert Ares, CEO of Land of Lincoln Credit Union.

The Board of Directors at LLCU challenge the staff each year with exceeding 2,000 hours of volunteerism. This goal to important part of the LLCU mission which is founded within the national credit union movement of “People Helping People”.
