Denver Community Credit Union held its 79th Annual Meeting on February 27th, 2014. We had a great turnout, and thank everyone that attended. At the Annual Meeting, members got to hear about some of the plans and initiatives of the credit union for the year to come, as well as the credit union's performance in 2013. The meeting focused on "Credit Union Difference" - what makes credit unions so unique in the financial industry. From our not-for-profit status, to our member-oriented service culture, we truly believe that Denver Community Credit Union (along with all credit unions) makes an impact in the communities we serve.

Denver Community Credit Union continually strives to be involved in our community. One way we participated with our community this month was by helping to sponsor the Colorado Anti-Violence Program's annual Rooting Down, Rising Up fundraiser, which was on October 22nd. The Colorado Anti-Violence Program has been dedicated for the past 27 years to ending violence within and against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) communities in Colorado by providing high quality services to survivors of violence. As a sponsor of the annual fundraiser, Denver Community Credit Union was able to reach out to over 250 guests at the sold out event.
It was a really great, touching event to see what the Colorado Anti-Violence Program does for the community. For more information about the Colorado Anti-Violence Program, visit their website.
October was a very busy, but very fun month for Denver Community. One of the best things we got to do was participate in Boo at the Zoo! From October 25th through October 26th, Denver Community Credit Union was armed with candy and ready to see everyone's costume. Boo at the Zoo is an annual event where multiple businesses and organizations come together at the Denver Zoo to provide children with a fun and safe trick-or-treating environment. While we were handing out goodies we were able to tell people about our involvement with Children's Miracle Network's Miracle Marathon. We helped sponsor the Miracle Marathon as part of Credit Unions Across Colorado. For more information about the Miracle Marathon, click here.
Denver Community Credit Union was excited to be part of the Children's Miracle Network Miracle Marathon. Credit Unions Across Colorado helped sponsor the Marathon, which is a 27.2-day virtual fundraising in which participants run/walk (or achieve forward motion) one mile per day for 27 days. It started October 1st and ended October 27th, 2013. The final day was for the kids. All participants in the Miracle Marathon completed an extra mile at the same time on October 27th. The Miracle Marathon helps support our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital - Children's Hospital Colorado.
One place Denver Community Credit Union team members liked to move their mile, was James Bible Park!
