As part of Teachers Credit Union’s Day of Giving on Monday, October 14, over 650 TCU team members will step out of the office and service centers to volunteer in communities across Indiana. Team members will support 43 organizations and nonprofits in 16 counties, including food banks, animal shelters, hospitals and educational centers for children with disabilities.
“A point of pride at TCU is the commitment all our team members have to the communities where we live and work,” said TCU President and CEO Paul Marsh. “Our annual Day of Giving is a wonderful way to put our values into action in a way that supports the many great organizations serving our friends and neighbors.”
In the South Bend region, team members will work with local organizations including Children’s Dispensary, La Casa de Amistad and St. Margaret’s House on a variety of activities such as making fleece blankets for children staying at Beacon Children’s Hospital, preparing the grounds and buildings of Camp Millhouse for winter and sorting donated books at Goodwill Industries to create Lending Libraries for teachers.
The annual Day of Giving is an extension of TCU’s ongoing effort to support the communities it serves. In 2018, TCU team members collectively recorded over 14,000 service hours. Together TCU and the TCU Foundation also gave back more than $750,000 to local organizations.
