Murmurings Podcast on DE Day of Service and More with GECU
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 7:00 AM


The latest podcast on Murmurings, a National Credit Union Foundation project, interviews GECU about some interesting community outreach inspired by the Foundation's Credit Union Development Education (DE) Program.

To celebrate the 2nd DE Day of Service recently, GECU in El Paso, Texas, donated enough food to feed 100 local families in conjunction with the grand opening of the food pantry at the Lower Dyer Community Center. This expanded support was part of their efforts to include the 12 development issues, such as hunger, discussed during DE Training into their charitable strategy.

You’ll hear from Ruby Alvarez, Community Development Manager at GECU, about not only the DE Day of Service, but their in-school branches, free tax preparation (VITA program), partnerships, Life Simulations for employees and much more.

“One thing I’ve learned with community development is that we need to learn what our city is doing already and then partner with the right non-profits. A lot of times you want to do many things on your own but then you come to realize ‘how can we all work together to make a larger impact?'” – Ruby Alvarez
