Giving back to our communities

  • 1,268 individuals assisted with no-cost financial education or counseling
  • 147 donations made to charities, non-profits, and schools.
  • Over $180,000 raised for local charities, community projects, non-profits, and schools
  • 1,064 total staff hours volunteered
