Royal Credit Union Community Give Back Day
Friday, October 6, 2017
Royal Credit Union - EDINA, Minn. (October 6, 2017) - Royal Credit Union (Royal) Offices will be closed on Monday, October 9, 2017 so team members can participate in a new corporate event called Community Give Back Day. Instead of reporting to the office on Monday morning, 574 Royal team members will roll up their sleeves and perform 3444 hours of service in over a dozen different communities.
Non-profit organizations in the Twin Cities and northwest Wisconsin will benefit from the event. In all, nearly 60 projects will be completed including making snack packs for kids and 4000 sandwiches for the homeless in the Twin Cities. Totes filled with items for families in transition and backpacks for the homeless will also be donated to organizations throughout the metro area and in Wisconsin. Examples of other projects include meal preparation at a homeless shelter in New Richmond, hanging Christmas Lights at a park in Chippewa Falls, and helping with a Habitat for Humanity house build in Rice Lake.
Media coverage of this event is welcome.
Event organizers and video/photo opportunities of snack pack and sandwich assembly will be available from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Monday, October 9 at the Royal Credit Union Edina Office, 4450 West 76th Street, Edina, MN. Contact Brittany O’Malley for more information, 715-563-8770.
