Volunteer Alexandria receives a gift of $7,000 from the CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union’s 70th Anniversary Community Challenge. “We are thrilled that the CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union has selected us as a beneficiary and thank all of the employees who made this happen. All of them have been working hard to reach their goal and I hope that they know that the impact of their efforts are enormous.  This donation helps us to continue the important work of connecting people six and older with the many needs in our community. “ Marion Brunken, Executive Director, Volunteer Alexandria.

The Community Challenge kicked off in June when CommonWealth One set a goal to save community members a total of $700,000 in loan interest in honor of its 70th anniversary. When a person refinanced a loan to a lower rate, that savings was added to the total savings goal. CommonWealth One committed to donating $7,000 each to two local charities once the goal had been reached.

“We are very excited about surpassing our goal before the end of the challenge,” stated Charlotte Cash, President/ CEO of CommonWealth One “Not only were we able to help people save on their loans, but we will also be able to donate $7,000 to Volunteer Alexandria and Skyline Literacy. This is a big accomplishment for our community.”
