People helping people: CU community comes together to support Habitat for Humanity initiative

The New York credit union community, representing credit unions across the state, along with New York Credit Union Association partners, came together Tuesday to support Capitol Build Day 2022 — a Habitat for Humanity of New York State initiative in which credit unions of New York state were recognized as the top-tier sponsor, and sent the highest number of volunteers.

Credit union advocates, along with state legislators and community volunteers teamed up to build a home for a hardworking New York family in Albany, at the bottom of the steps of the state capitol. The event not only demonstrates the credit union movement’s support for affordable homeownership and community reinvestment, it also provides a great advocacy initiative and brings more awareness of credit unions.
