Arizona State Credit Union Honored with International Recognition
Credit Union receives multiple Communitas Awards
PHOENIX, Ariz. –Arizona State Credit Union received two Communitas Awards for its outstanding support of local Arizona communities.
The Credit Union was awarded Excellence in Community Partnership for sponsoring the 2011 "Fun Shoot" for the Arizona State Employees Charitable Campaign (SECC). The Credit Union contributed to total event donations of $22,000, which went to the Employees Helping Employees organization. This is just one of the many events the Credit Union hosts with the SECC to raise money for more than 700 state charities.
Additionally, the Credit Union received an award in Excellence in a Company Sponsored Volunteer Project for its company-wide water drive. In its strong commitment to Arizona communities, the Credit Union donated more than 20 tons of water to the Phoenix Rescue Mission, a not-for-profit organization that provides relief to homeless people throughout the Valley who are at high risk for dehydration and other heat -related illnesses. The water drive became even more valuable when Arizona's summer temperatures spiked at a record 117 degrees, the hottest temperature recorded in August since 2001.
The Communitas Awards are presented by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) in order to recognize companies, organizations or individuals that donate time, effort or money to improve the communities in which they live or work.
"As a state financial cooperative, one of the core values at Arizona State Credit Union is supporting local, community-focused organizations," said David E. Doss, President/CEO of Arizona State Credit Union.
