Redwood Credit Union (RCU) was recently honored as Volunteer of the Year at the 7th Annual Blend of Cultures Award Recognition and Gala by the Napa County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
The Blend of Cultures awards represent one of many ways the Chamber fulfills its vision of promoting the economic advancement of the Napa County Hispanic population and serving as a bridge between the Hispanic and non-Hispanic community by facilitating business, social, educational, and governmental relationships.
“This yearly event is an opportunity to celebrate and support community partners,” said Lindsay Jones, Redwood Credit Union’s Napa branch manager. “We’re very honored to be recognized for the volunteer work we do in the Napa community.”
Redwood Credit Union supports several community efforts in Napa through sponsorship and/or volunteering with groups such as Community Action Napa Valley, Center for Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership, and Puertas Abiertas. After the October 2017 wildfires, Redwood Credit Union partnered with Senator Mike McGuire and the Press Democrat to create the North Bay Fire Relief Fund, which collected and distributed more than $32 million dollars to support relief efforts in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake Counties. RCU covered all administrative costs for the fund so that 100% of donations were used to directly support fire survivors.
