Corporate and Personal Volunteering
How helping others make a difference for businesses & individuals.
Making Time to Volunteer
Do you feel like you don’t have time to volunteer because of your work schedule? What if you and your co-workers could volunteer together?
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is growing in popularity with many businesses today. Having a healthy culture involving CSR helps to retain employees already working at a company, and also attracts new employees. Forbes.com shared NetImpact's survey which shows that 35% of people would take a 15% pay cut to work for companies where CSR is a focus. Today it is increasingly important to people of all ages to make volunteering part of their normal work week.
Volunteering requires no special skills. Even standard career skills are helpful to nonprofit and charitable organizations and events.
BCCU In The Community
At Bellwether Community Credit Union, we support the credit union motto of “People helping people.” We are involved with numerous charities and non-profits including:
- Bellwether Community Champions (3 years)
- Spirit of New Hampshire Awards (Multi-Year Legacy Sponsor)
- Animal Rescue League of NH
- American Heart Association of NH
And many more.
Unique Ways Bellwether Has Helped
American Red Cross – Bellwether has supported the American Red Cross by having the first team of trained volunteers, as part of the “Ready When the Time Comes” program.
New Horizons Soup Kitchen - The credit union supports New Horizons Soup Kitchen by providing a team of 30+ volunteers to serve dinner once a month. We also sponsor and serve a special holiday dinner for homeless veterans on an annual basis.
March of Dimes - During the renovation of our Hooksett Road branch, Bellwether donated furniture we no longer needed to March of Dimes for their new office in Manchester.
The support of these organizations comes in many forms. Through programs like these, we partner with the community and other organizations to make New Hampshire a great place to work and live.
Volunteering is a positive way you can affect the community. Research shows it positively impacts our health, and as mentioned previously, it's a great way to expand your network. Opportunities can be one-time events, or recurring events throughout the year. If you are looking for volunteer opportunities visit Volunteermatch.org and VolunteerNH.org.
