Creek Clean Up
Nearly a dozen employees and volunteers from the $1.6 billion United Federal Credit Union and the Northern Nevada Heart Walk used rakes and shovels to clear rocks, brush and debris from Thomas Creek Trail on Friday, Aug. 15. The effort widened the trail in Galena, Nev., and improved hiking and biking access.
“Our employees were thrilled at the opportunity to give back to this community in a big way,” said Danny DeLaRosa, UFCU market vice president – Nevada. “Thomas Creek Trial is a beautiful, natural amenity that we are blessed to have in our backyard. It was well worth putting in some sweat equity in order to support kids and families enjoying the outdoors together.”
Thomas Creek Trail is a favorite destination for fall foliage seekers. Many trail visitors enjoy hiking, mountain biking, walking their dogs, horseback riding and even snowshoeing in the winter.
The St. Joseph, Mich.-based United FCU provides eight hours of paid time off for employees to use toward volunteering annually in their communities. The credit union has 22 branches in six states.
