R.I.A. Federal Credit Union celebrates 80 years in 2015 and wants to show their communities what the Power of 80 can do. During the year R.I.A. will complete a variety of community initiatives that have a positive impact in the areas their members live and work.
The first objective of R.I.A.’s campaign was to host a food drive during the month of February for River Bend Foodbank in the Quad Cities, Wilton Food Pantry, Savanna Food Pantry, and Neighbor for Neighbor Food Pantry in Tomah, Wisconsin.
“We set out to collect food and cash donations to exceed over 5,000 pounds,” explains Larry Coverstone, R.I.A CEO. “We are excited to announce that our drive brought in over 7,000 pounds of donations to our local food shelters.”
R.I.A. held various department competitions, jean days, and collected food at a Quad City Mallards game to help accomplish their goal.
In the coming year, R.I.A. plans to do 7 more major community initiatives leading up to their 80th Anniversary in September. Keep an eye out for future outreach from R.I.A. Federal Credit Union.
