It was announced today that ORNL Federal Credit Union raised $64,861 during the United Way of Anderson County’s recent annual giving campaign, bringing the total for the last two years to over $131,000 in contributions.
“At ORNL Federal Credit Union, we are committed to making a difference by giving back and helping to improve the quality of life for others in our communities,” said Colin Anderson, ORNL FCU Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “An investment in the United Way is an investment in our community.”
Donations to UWAC are used to support critical services in the local community throughout the year. Local volunteers determine where to allocate money to make the greatest impact based on demonstrated need and efficacy.
“ORNL FCU’s investment in Anderson and surrounding countries is critical, making up over 5% of our total revenue,” said Rick Morrow, Director of UWAC. “In 2013, UWAC dollars touched people’s lives more than 37,000 times. ORNL FCU’s investment means that someone is there to help 1,850 times through the course of the year.”
UWAC funds go to support 32 agencies and 50 different programs that provide services to Anderson County residents. For more information about UWAC services or to donate to provide this type of assistance to your neighbors, please go to www.uwayac.org or call UWAC at 865-483-8431.
