Arkansas Federal employees embody the credit union's purpose of being the difference for our members and the communities in which we live and serve. During the first quarter of 2019, Arkansas Federal employees presented checks to local charities totaling almost $31,000 from their employee-giving campaign.
As part of the employee-giving campaign, employees that have elected to participate, donate a part of each paycheck for a local charity. An amazing 32% of Arkansas Federal employees participated in the employee-giving campaign in 2018. The monies donated go to charities that help treat cancer, fund research for the cure of cancer, heart disease, and juvenile diabetes, provide resources for families of pediatric patients, and provide resources and support for families and caregivers of dementia patients.
“Giving back is what we’re about at Arkansas Federal, and our employees embody that spirit,” said Rodney Showmar, president and CEO. “We want to make a difference in the financial lives of our members, but also have a positive impact in the communities we share.”
The charities that are supported by Arkansas Federal's employees are Alzheimer’s Arkansas, the American Heart Association, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, CARTI Cancer Center, JDRF, Ronald McDonald House and the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.
