Over 23 nonprofits gained immeasurable support from REV during the third annual REV Day for Good. Held on Monday, October 9, 2023, REV's day of service amplifies the credit union’s commitment to building resilient communities. With the participation of 250 dedicated employees, REV completed 23 service projects for local nonprofits and community agencies, contributing over 1,300 volunteer hours across the Carolinas.
While REV is closed for the Federal Holiday, the entire team looks forward to spending time together wearing different hats. They have the opportunity to step away from the teller line, the back office, or the executive desk to roll up their sleeves and do what they can to #UpTheGood.
"It just fills my heart. Each one of the causes that I've worked with over the past three years have been incredibly different, but they all tie back to my core values and REV's core values. Really, it's just been excellent for me to talk about it with my wife and talk about it with my kids. Then, for us to continue volunteering after this one particular day speaks to REV's commitment to community," expressed Paul McManus, Director of Organizational Development at REV.
REV Day for Good exemplifies REV's dedication to uniting people and making a meaningful impact. Throughout the year, employees are encouraged to pursue their volunteer passions and contribute their time to organizations that align with their values.
"Volunteerism is an integral part of REV's culture. It has everything to do with mindset and the emphasis our employees place on the impact they are having on individuals and the community as a whole," stated Jason Lee, President/CEO of REV.
