Credit union employees volunteer for community projects

A day of community volunteering has employees from a local Credit Union helping projects throughout the area.

The 2nd annual ‘Altra Gives Back Day’ had employees working on a Habitat for Humanity project on La Crosse’s north side.

Three hundred Altra Federal Credit Union employees volunteered at 30 organizations throughout the area.

Employees actually took the day off of work to increase the day’s impact.

“By volunteering and dedicating all of our employees time on a given day, we can have a significant amount of impact in one day,” said Chris Pater, Altra Federal Credit Union real estate systems manager.

Employees also helped repair hiking trails and volunteered at senior centers.
