The Triple CU Scoop - Volunteering in your community!

Published on Jan 24, 2014

At Collins Community Credit Union we take pride in our commitment to helping people and organizations in our community. In 2013 we volunteered over 2,500 hours in our local communities.   

Last night, a few CCCU employees, and their family members headed to the Hawkeye Area Community Action Program food reservoir to help pack emergency food boxes. 

The Hawkeye Area Community Action Program, Inc. (HACAP) provides service in six counties; Benton, Iowa, Johnson, Jones, Linn and Washington. The organization’s mission is to help people develop skills to become successful and build strong communities. We had a great time working together to help those in need!

If you’re looking to get involved in your community, but don’t know where to start, here are a few websites to help you out! 
United Way of East Central Iowa- The United Way of East Central Iowa’s website provides a list of volunteer opportunities by date, or you can search for opportunities based on keywords, city or zip code.
Volunteer Nation- Volunteer Nation is a group bloggers made up of middle school, high school and college age students from across the country who help find and place young volunteers. There is a volunteer database which is searchable by interest, location and age. is a great resource to utilize when searching for local volunteer opportunities. This database provides a listing and details of upcoming community events. 
As you can see by the picture below, we had a great time last night and we are looking forward to doing it again!
