"Dress Down Days" & Corporate Donations

Each Friday, Commonwealth Credit Union staff also give donations to worthy causes as part of our "Dress Down Day" program. In exchange for a minimum $2 donation, staff can wear casual attire on those days. Commonwealth Credit Union staff have raised thousands of dollars for families in need and other charitable organizations since this program began several years ago. The credit union also makes financial donations to various causes throughout the year in its efforts to be a "good corporate citizen" of our community.
