MLK Day of Service: What Are You Doing for Others?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’” This focus on “people helping people” is a cornerstone of the credit union movement. Credit unions invest time and effort in volunteering and local giving all year long in the communities they serve.

Many will also be sharing their sprit of giving this coming Monday – for MLK Day, the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service. It’s a great way to honor Dr. King’s legacy, as he devoted his life to advancing equality and economic opportunity for all, and he and taught us everyone has a role to play.

We’ll be observing a “day on, not a day off” on Monday with dedicated volunteer efforts in our Fort Worth, Madison and Waverly locations. And, individual volunteer work will cascade across Great Bend and the many other cities where our employees live and work.

We’ll share some of our story through social media as a way to honor Dr. King and the credit union difference on Monday. So, if you’re not already connected with us through Twitter, FacebookInstagram and LinkedIn, we welcome you to join us there!

No matter what inspires you to volunteer, remember: You can join us and countless credit unions who will make Monday a day of service.

How will you give back?
