Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 13, 2016
Resource One Credit Union’s Leadership Team celebrated Giving Tuesday and the holiday season by giving back to the community. Their initiative was to help out the less fortunate by collecting blankets and coats that would be donated to a local charity, Dallas Life. Dallas Life is a charity located in downtown that helps the needy by offering clothes, counseling, spiritual care, recovery programs, dental and health care.
The R1 Leadership Team encouraged all of Resource One’s employees and members to donate any new or gently used coats and blankets for the project. The team was able to collect over 155 coats and 65 blankets on behalf of Resource One members and employees. “Our group selected this project primarily because it holds true to the espoused values that we hold near and dear to our hearts. It’s all about people helping people, the very cornerstone of our existence,” said Phillip Crocker, creator of the Resource One Leadership Development Program.
Once the R1 Leadership Team delivered the donations to Dallas Life, they had the privilege of donating their time to help decorate the shelter for the holidays. Mike Moore, Leadership Team member, replied, “It was a great experience for all of us to be able to help Dallas Life brighten their building with Christmas trees that their guests to enjoy during the holiday season.”
