Casual Friday Jeans Donations
Every Friday, the staff at GEFCU has the option to wear jeans with our Great Erie attire for a donation that goes back to the local communities. We make contributions to the community with the money raised during the "Casual Friday" day here at Great Erie.
For the month of July, we supported the ALS Association, Upstate New York Chapter. (Commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease) with a $300 check from the credit union.
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord. When these cells die, voluntary muscle control and movement die with them. As many as 30,000 Americans may be living with ALS at any given time.
The mission of the ALS Association is to discover treatments and a cure for ALS and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest. The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit, voluntary health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS.
The staff is thankful that they can make a small donation to helping the community and local organizations ... it's the credit union philosophy ... "people helping people".
