TOWER- Challenge on.
The Embarrass-Vermillion Federal Credit Union is taking part in a state-wide credit union-powered initiative to recognize essential workers, as well as support local businesses.
On Wednesday, EVCU presented gift certificates from Tower-area restaurants to employees at Zup’s Grocery, one of our area’s essential businesses. Other EVCU offices are making similar donations to workers at grocery stores in Biwabik, Nett Lake, and Hoyt Lakes.
“We were challenged by the Virginia Coop Credit Union,” said Tower branch manager Sunday Young. “And now we are challenging North Star Credit Union in Cook.”
“It is in our credit union nature to give back to the communities we serve,” said Roxi Jensen, EVCU president. “We are proud of how our CU family is rising to the challenge to support those essential workers at the frontlines of the COVID-19.”
“On behalf of our EVFCU Board of Directors and team, we thank all the grocery workers who are there to ensure our families have the foods and goods we use every day. Your hard work and dedication to the community does not go unnoticed,” she said. “We also wanted to reach out to the many local restaurants that have been impacted by the COVID-19 events.”
The #CUs4U Challenge was created by the Hiway Federal Credit Union in St. Paul in April, as an opportunity for credit unions to support both local small businesses and essential workers in the communities that they serve.
“Together, as part of #CUs4U, we can help make a difference in our communities while supporting our local small businesses and recognizing and thanking all those who continue to serve us every day,” said Dave Boden, Hiway’s President/CEO.
