$15,000 Raised for Hawaii Island United Way
January 04, 2018
Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union (HCFCU) staff generously opened their hearts — and wallets — and donated $15,000 during the Hawaii Island United Way (HIUW) annual employee campaign. The monies raised for the non-profit service organization will benefit Hawaii Islanders through such community impact initiatives as education, health, and financial stability.
“I’m always so proud of enormous hearts of our HCFCU family,” said Tricia Buskirk, President and CEO of the credit union. “Across all of our five branches our staff never hesitates to openly give of themselves to organizations that support our Hawaii Island friends and neighbors.
The Hawaii Island United Way invests in 54 health and human service programs that reach over 75% of Hawaii Island families and individuals each year. All funded programs fall within the parameters of its Community Care Impact Initiatives, which include, Education (encouraging and nurturing positive values to develop skills in children, youth and adults), Income (empowering families and individuals to become financially stable; increasing self-sufficiency and independence) and Health (providing for basic needs and a safety net of services that promote prevention and encourage healing and recovery).
Hawaii Community Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit, federally insured financial institution owned by its 40,000 members. HCFCU’s branches are located in Honokaa, Kailua-Kona, Kaloko, Kealakekua and Kohala, along with Student Credit Unions in Kealakehe, Kohala and Konawaena High Schools.
