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 December 2021, we supported Open Arms Rescue of WNY with a $300 check from the credit union.
Open Arms Rescue of WNY is a small, grassroots type of rescue group centralized in Akron, NY. They do not have a shelter, instead are completely foster-based to give our rescues the best chance at rehabilitation by learning to live in a home atmosphere. Our core group is comprised of all-volunteer, non-paid members who have years of animal and rescue experience. Our volunteers include a certified dog trainer, local business owners, community members, and loving foster families who all share a common goal. Their mission is to rescue dogs of all breeds and ages from either local surrender situations or shelters to place them into loving forever homes.
OARWNY is a non-profit charity - with federal 501c3 status - funded solely on donations and fundraising.
The Great Erie 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".
