Interra Credit Union Holds Annual Do Well To Do Good Day
October 15, 2021 – 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 11th.
On the credit union’s second Do Well To Do Good™ Day, staff continue to share their spark by helping others in the local communities. “Interra is committed to showing both a fiscal and personal responsibility to our communities,” stated Meegan Siegwarth, Vice President of Marketing for Interra. “Do Well To Do Good™ Day aligns perfectly with the credit union’s desire to be invested in our communities with a strong integrity of excellence,” 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 20 nonprofits in the five counties of Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Marshall and Noble on this day. Staff assisted these nonprofits in a variety of ways including but not limited to; building bunk beds, outside painting and general maintenance repairs and needs, card making for local food pantries, disinfecting, and reorganizing for several Boys & Girls clubs, filling bookbags full of food for children in the community and more. “We are thankful for the partnership we have with Interra Credit Union and their Do Well To Do Good™ Day,” stated Mandy Miller, Grants Procurement and Development Coordinator for the Boys & Girls Club of Elkhart County. “The service Interra provides on this day, and throughout the year, helps us fulfill our mission to inspire and empower the children of Elkhart County,” she added. “It is because of the support we receive from caring community partners, that we can make a positive impact on the children and families we serve,” she concluded.
