Credit unions and partner organizations dedicated Monday, Oct. 14 to volunteering in community service projects and spreading kindness as part of the third annual CU FORWARD® Day.

4,000 people spent the traditional bank holiday by putting in 20,000 volunteer hours across the state. This year, credit union employees participated in events such as packing food for Feed My Starving Children and Second Harvest Heartland; participating in outdoor cleanup projects; hosting a movie night at Children’s Hospital; and a puppy party for Neighborhood House in Saint Paul.

The hashtags “CUFORWARD” and “CUFORWARDday” were trending on social media and several media outlets across the region covered the event:
