Philanthropy committee selects area food pantries for holiday giving

December 16, 2013

Members of the Greater Iowa Credit Union marketing staff presented a $500 check recently to several local food pantries. The gift was from the credit union’s Corporate Giving Committee. Each year during the holiday season, the committee, staffed by credit union employees and volunteer board members, proactively presents checks to non-profit organizations located in its branch communities.
