Food Drive

food-drive-2015v2The past couple of years Priority First FCU has held a food drive for our local food pantries. Summer is a really crucial time and many feel good about giving around the holidays or winter time, but the needs for items and goods at each food pantry is year round and that’s why Priority First FCU took the initiative to hold an annual food drive in the Summer time. Members and Non-members are able to donate non-perishable items to any Priority First FCU branch and the items donated to that branch will be given to that branch’s local food pantry. So far, as a Credit Union, we have been able to donate over 4,800 items to our local pantries!! Thank you to everyone who has made donations for this event.

Relay For Life

relay-for-life-2016v2Relay For Life is an event held annually where millions of people in over 20 countries come together to raise funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through this movement. During this event, they recognize the cancer survivors, caregivers and honor the loved ones who have passed. Priority First FCU creates a team to fundraise for this event during the year and also attends the event in the park. We have helped raise over $2,100 for the American Cancer Society!

Bowl For Kids Sake

bfks-2016v2What is Bowl for Kids Sake? It’s a signature fundraiser held yearly by Big Brothers Big Sisters, where half a million people across America come together to help raise money to support an awesome organization. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported network, the money raised during this event helps conduct background checks on volunteers to ensure child safety.

Jefferson County Fair

jeff-co-fair-2016v2We are a proud sponsor of the Jefferson County Fair that takes places every July. Jefferson Co. Fair recently started a “Family Night” at the fair where families can come for the night and pay half the price that they normally would. We’ve given away concert tickets, gift cards, toys for the kids, etc. We enjoy attending the fair to interact with the people in our community!
