Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Altra Federal Credit Union will hold its fifth annual Altra Gives Back Day on Monday, October 10th, 2022. All Altra offices and the member contact center will be closed as employees volunteer to support organizations in the communities they serve.
“We are excited for employees to participate in our fifth annual Altra Gives Back Day,” said Altra President and Chief Executive Officer, Steve Koenen. “Coming together to help organizations in our communities creates a bond between employees and a sense of pride knowing they have given back.”
Altra employees volunteer year-round in their communities using Volunteer Time Off and personal time. The second Monday of October is a federal holiday that financial institutions are often closed, which provides an opportunity for employees to gather and collectively give back.
Nearly 500 employees nationwide will participate in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Tennessee, Texas, and New Jersey. This year’s event allowed employees to choose an in-person volunteer location, such as area Habitat for Humanity build sites, local food banks and Boys and Girls Clubs.
