Altra Federal Credit Union will hold an inaugural event this month as a way to give back to communities.
Altra Federal Credit Union will hold its inaugural Altra Gives Back Day on Monday, October 8. The day was chosen because it is a federal holiday that financial institutions are regularly closed.
More than 275 local employees and 80 employees nationwide will volunteer at several organizations.
Employees will be teaching financial literacy, working in community gardens, assisting at food shelters, aiding agencies that help at-risk and special needs children, supporting animal shelters, socializing with area seniors, building homes and more.
“We are excited to hold Altra Gives Back Day in our member communities nationwide,” said Altra Community Relations Manager, Shawn Hauser. “By giving back to the organizations in the markets we serve, we are strengthening our communities as well as inspiring our employees to make a difference.”
All Altra offices and member contact center will be closed as employees participate in a variety of community volunteer activities.
