Fort Financial staff take part in local shoe giveaway event – October 7, 2014

On September 29, Fort Financial staff volunteered to help the Northeast Indiana Credit Union Chapter distribute new shoes to 300 kids from the local Boys and Girls Clubs and Euell Wilson Center.

The shoes were donated by funds raised at a golf event put on by the Northeast Indiana Credit Union Chapter. Approximately 40 employees from area credit unions volunteered to wash the youngsters’ feet, fit them with new shoes, and give them a new pair or socks, snack, and backpack.

This event was a great way to demonstrate the concept of “giving back” in hopes that they may someday pay it forward.
