Altra Federal Credit Union
Clarksville, TN – Altra Federal Credit Union will hold its inaugural Altra Gives Back Day on Monday, October 8th, 2018. All Altra offices and member contact center will be closed as employees participate in a variety of community volunteer activities.
“Altra strives to make an impact in each of the communities we serve and one way that we achieve that is employee volunteerism,” said Altra President and Chief Executive Officer, Jack Peplinski. “This year we wanted to make a large impact and a day of service does just that.”
Altra Federal Credit Union “Altra Gives Back Day” is set for Monday, October 8th.
Altra employees volunteer thousands of hours each year in their member communities nationwide. By setting aside one day to dedicate to service, all employees will be able to participate. The day was chosen because it is a federal holiday that financial institutions are regularly closed.
“We are excited to hold Altra Gives Back Day in our member communities nationwide,” said Altra Community Relations Manager, Shawn Hauser. “By giving back to the organizations in the markets we serve, we are strengthening our communities as well as inspiring our employees to make a difference.”
Over 275 local employees and over 80 employees nationwide will volunteer at more than 30 organizations. Employees will be teaching financial literacy, working in community gardens, assisting at food shelters, aiding agencies that help at-risk and special needs children, supporting animal shelters, socializing with area seniors, building homes and more.
