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.
To continue their campaign R.I.A. Federal Credit Union will be hosting a non-profit competition with Junior Achievement of the Quad Cities, Honor Flight of the Quad Cities, and the River Bend Foodbank in conjunction with their Bettendorf Branch and Corporate Center Grand Opening.
Each non-profit has been given a display and ballot box from R.I.A. to decorate and communicate their story. During R.I.A.’s Bettendorf Branch and Corporate Center Grand Opening festivities, the community will be encouraged to stop by and vote for their favorite non-profit. The winner will be awarded a check for $5,000 from R.I.A. The voting will take place during the week of April 6th and end on Saturday, April 11th at 1:00 p.m.
“We wanted to find a way to give back to our community as part of our grand opening, as well as give the chance for local non-profits who do extraordinary things in our community a chance to raise awareness for their causes and hopefully win the $5,000,” explains Larry Coverstone, R.I.A CEO. “With our Power of 80 initiatives we are committing to our communities and hope to make a major impact on our members and non members alike.”
In the coming year, R.I.A. plans to do 6 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.
