A+ Federal Credit Union recently held its second annual community-driven, employee-led event, A+ Gives Day, benefiting Central Texas communities. During the event, nearly 500 A+ Federal Credit Union employees volunteered more than 1,750 hours by participating in a wide range of charitable activities benefitting Central Texas communities, along with helping in areas across the nation where remote team members work. A+ Federal Credit Union utilizes A+ Gives Day as a way to connect its team members with giving back in the areas of food insecurity, animal needs, local park clean up, and community outreach to help make a difference in the local area. “We’re truly grateful for the amazing and generous volunteers who helped us donate our time and resources to our communities across Central Texas,” said Eric Kase, President and CEO of A+ Federal Credit Union. “A+ Gives Day is our favorite way to show our communities that we are committed to banking on each other and building stronger communities.”
