LCU in the Community
Our staff are so much more than just trusted advisors: they are coaches and leaders, committee members, community volunteers, and truly dedicated to creating impact that ripples throughout the community. We like to add an extra cherry on top of the volunteering that our employees do, and when they reach a volunteering milestone, we provide an organization of their choice with a $500 grant, to do even more good in the communities we live, work and play in. In 2023 alone our staff gave over 3,100 hours of their time in our communities!
Donations and Sponsorships
Dedicated to giving back to the community in as many ways possible, and that means donating funds to the arts, sports, health, community events and youth initiatives in the Lakeland. Our money goes directly back into the communities that we serve, and that means its affect directly impacts you, your neighbors, your friends, your family and all of the people in between. In 2023 we were able to give back over $119,000 to over 65 different organizations and events and able to create a lasting impact for our communities.
Care Wear Program
Lakeland Credit Union’s Care Wear program was started by staff as a way of supporting important causes in their communities. We’re casual on Fridays because staff donate $2 every week to wear jeans. The money is donates 2x a year to local not for profits. Over $133,000 has been given back to our communities since 2006.
Our 2023 recipients were:
- The Hive Youth Hub
- Lakeland Humane Society
- Action for Healthy Communities
- Clayton Bellamy Foundation
- The Dragonfly Centre
- Stepping Stones Crisis Society
