On October 10, 2022, REV launched its second annual REV Day for Good. This year, the credit union’s 225 employees doubled down on their support of local non-profits and community agencies by teaming up to complete 20 service projects, and collectively donating a total of 1200+ volunteer hours across the Carolinas. That almost doubles REV’s impact from 2021 event.
REV Day for Good is more than just a day of service. It’s a tangible feeling powered by connection. Whether a partner organization provides a hand up or empowers growth, REV team members bring their passion and energy for helping others. You can spot them in their signature gold shirts offering support and lending a hand throughout the year. For REV Day for Good, it’s full power from the entire organization while operations are closed for the Federal holiday.
“Volunteerism is an integral part of REV’s culture. It has everything to do with mindset and the emphasis our employees place on the impact they are having on individuals and the community as a whole,” said Jason Lee, President/CEO of REV Federal Credit Union.
The event kicked off at the RiverDogs Stadium, rally style, where team members combined efforts for a joint service project. During that time, employees sorted and packed hygiene/toiletry kits to be distributed amongst multiple non-profit agencies. From there, they divided into their afternoon teams to grab lunch and set-out to #UPTHEGOOD.
As a financial institution, REV provides a safe and secure home for people to grow their savings and dreams through their means. As a cooperative, REV strives to help its communities thrive in both adversity and prosperity. This is solidified in REV’s mission of growth with purpose. Part of that purpose is making a social impact that goes well beyond financial donations.
This year’s REV Day for Good brought awareness to a diverse group of non-profit partners and the incredible work they perform in providing essential services to the community. REV Team Members volunteered their time to fulfill service projects for the following organizations:
Project details ranged from bundling 10,000+ diapers with the Junior League of Charleston Diaper Bank to rebuilding and beautifying the sensory garden at Pattison’s Academy, and sorting 3,000 pounds of food donations for ECCO.
REV Day for Good featured an all-day social campaign leveraging #UPTHEGOOD to showcase REV’s impact and brought awareness to its non-profit partners. Follow @REVfederal on Instagram and Facebook to stay connected. #UPTHEGOOD, it’s not just a hashtag, it’s true impact!
