Prosperity Month

We Gave Back 1,490 Volunteer Hours for Elevations Prosperity Month!

This June, we came together with the goal to give back 1,000 volunteer hours to our Front Range communities. Our member and employees are the best, and we are proud to announce that we exceeded our goal with 1,490 volunteer hours contributed in June by a total of 225 participants, including 149 Elevations employees and 76 Elevations members. Our team volunteered at the following organizations, and we want to thank these organizations for their partnership with us during Prosperity Month!

Thank you for supporting Elevations Prosperity Month! Watch our video recap to see what it was like:

And here are just a few of the ways we made a difference in June:

A Precious Child (Broomfield)

“A Precious Child is incredibly grateful for each and every one of the team members from Elevations Credit Union that came out to support our mission during Prosperity Month! Each team had amazing attitudes and accomplished so much. We were able to sort through thousands of pounds of community donations, work on special projects and more. In total, we estimate that more than 2,000 kiddos were served through everyone’s efforts. We can’t thank you all enough and look forward to the next time we get to host a team from Elevations!” – Nichole Karpinsky, Director of Volunteer Services for A Precious Child

Community Food Share (Louisville)

“Hunger is prevalent – and not something that we can fight alone. Working with partners like Elevations Credit Union, we are able to provide over 10 million pounds of food to the 1 in 9 members in our community that are food insecure annually. During Prosperity Month, Elevations Credit Union employees volunteered enough hours to provide 22,440 meals. Community Food Share is proud to work with Elevations Credit Union staff year-round to make a difference in our community. Bravo Elevations Credit Union!” – Dina Coates Koebler, Chief Development Officer for Community Food Share

Cultivate (Boulder)

"We're so grateful to the 43 Elevations Credit Union volunteers who provided 170 service hours to help clear the yards of our senior community members. Many seniors are unable to take care of their own yards because of physical or mobility limitations and rely on the generosity of amazing volunteers to stay safe outside of their homes. Thanks for all your great work!" – Thalia Foster, Director of Volunteers for Cultivate

Some of the responses from Cultivate program participants:
Cindy said: "The volunteers were so amazing! They made my yard come alive; it's so pretty!"
Rita said: "Thank you so much to all the volunteers who helped me tame my yard, I am so appreciative!"
Claudia said: "Thank you again and again, your volunteers are wonderful!"

The Farm at Lee Martinez Park
(Fort Collins)

“Having the Elevations Credit Union crew paint the inside and outside of the chicken house in such a short time was a boost to Farm Staff, a project that could have taken weeks for us to accomplish, given everything else that needs attention on a farm.” – Bridget Brownell, Recreation Supervisor for The Farm at Lee Martinez Park

Food Bank of Larimer County
(Loveland and Fort Collins)

“We are very grateful to your team of volunteers for coming in to help us out during the month of June! We so appreciate all your efforts, and we want you to know how thankful we are for the time you spent assisting us in our fight against hunger in Larimer County. We could not make the difference we do without volunteers like those from Elevations Credit Union!” – Nancy Tafoya, Community Engagement Coordinator for Food Bank for Larimer County

Poudre Education Association in conjunction with the Poudre School District
(Loveland and Fort Collins)

“I want to share my extreme gratitude toward the Pearson Education/Elevations crew that helped me sand the fish tank at Laurel Elementary on Friday, June 28. The 90-gallon fish tank has been in the office at the school for over 20 years. It was well past due for an overhaul. I mentioned in a previous email that I tend to be a perfectionist and hoped that the volunteers that came to Laurel shared my vision. My expectations were not only met but far exceeded. Four gentlemen and I spent 4.5 hours stripping the previous finish off and prepared the surfaces for primer and paint. I was so excited about the progress that we made during the day that I continued that momentum and applied a coat of primer that evening. The staff and students are in for a real treat when they return to school in August. Thanks, in part, to the Pearson Education/Elevations volunteers, our office now has a cohesive design and is calming.” – Lynda Moore, Laurel Elementary in the Poudre School District
