Looking for a fun and meaningful way to bond with your co-workers or clients? Pacific Service Federal Credit Union shares how they have successfully incorporated philanthropy into their team building efforts:
“Pacific Service Credit Union is a proud supporter of the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. It is part of our mission to be a good corporate citizen and assist the communities we serve. We support the Food Bank because 1 in 8 of our neighbors depend on them to receive emergency and supplemental food.
We value our partnership with the Food Bank and have found many creative ways to donate time and money. One of our favorites is our annual three-month long ‘Jeans for Beans’ campaign. Employees are encouraged to “buy” punch cards by donating food, which allows them to wear jeans any day of the week.
We also place collection barrels in our corporate office and branches during the holidays. Typically, we collect more than 500 pounds of food to assist families in need.
Along with corporate donations, we contribute approximately $37,000 annually to the Food Bank.
In January, we hosted a group of local business partners to lunch and an afternoon of sorting food. In just a couple hours, the group sorted more than 2,000 pounds of food which was distributed to families in the community. All of the attendees left that afternoon with a feeling of triumph for what they helped the Food Bank accomplish. It was a fantastic volunteer experience and before the group left the building, they were already planning their next sorting date. We are proud to be part of an organization that has such a profound impact on the community.”
