Redwood Credit Union (RCU) completed its 2015 United Way workplace giving campaign with total contributions of $102,866, exceeding this year’s campaign goal of $100,000, to support United Way of the Wine Country. The Credit Union raised $98,175 for United Way last year.
The Credit Union offered several unique incentives to encourage employees to contribute: prize raffles, casual days, smoothie parties and more. In addition to supporting with monetary contributions, RCU employees recently volunteered in United Way’s Day of Caring. Volunteers this year focused on two projects in Santa Rosa, packing food for the Redwood Empire Food Bank, packing meals for Council on Aging and food preparation for Ceres Community Project in Sebastopol.
In addition to United Way, RCU supports a wide variety of nonprofits and community efforts including local volunteer centers, and the Sonoma, Marin and Mendocino County Human Races.
