Interra Holds Annual Do Well To Do Good DayTM
October 19, 2022 – As part of Interra Credit Union’s Do Well To Do GoodTM vision, the credit union recently held their annual staff volunteer day on Monday, October 10th.
On the credit union’s third annual Do Well To Do Good™ Day, staff members had the opportunity to ignite their spark within and assist the community in a variety of ways. “It always amazes me how Interra staff are so committed to offer their time to make a difference in our local communities,” stated Amy Sink, CEO of Interra Credit Union. “Lives are changed when we take a few minutes to offer our time, treasure and talents in order to assist our local non-profit partners,” she added.
All staff gathered at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds for a morning presentation followed by food trucks and time together, before dispersing into the credit union’s local communities to serve. Interra had nearly 300 staff members provide roughly 1,200 volunteer hours while serving 32 organizations in the five counties of Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Marshall and Noble on this day. Staff assisted these organizations in a variety of ways including but not limited to; building bunk beds, outside painting and general maintenance repairs and needs, stocking shelves for local food pantries, reading and mentoring to children at various schools, putting together baskets with essential items to support our troops and more. “Partners like Interra Credit Union allow us to fulfill a significant need in our local communities,” stated Jenny Sager, Chapter Co-President of Sleep In Heavenly Peace of Elkhart County. “Our mission is to ensure no child sleeps on the floor and the Interra team plays a part in driving out that mission,” she added.
