Avadian Credit Union assembled and donated six new adult bicycles to the Christian Service Center, located in Gulf Shores, AL, to help those in need of transportation.
Avadian Board Members along with the Credit Union's Executive Team challenged themselves in a recent Board Meeting to come up with an exercise demonstrating team work and Avadian's commitment to helping the community. After some research, they learned the Christian Service Center in Gulf Shores was looking for donations to assist individuals who were struggling to financially get back on track.
"The Center is a 'Hand Up' rather than a 'Hand Out' agency. Clients are given immediate help with their financial emergency. This acts as a Band-Aid while we try to show clients the way to a more permanent solution to their problem. Avadian approached us asking what they could do to help. When we told them how so many of those we help simply need a way to get to work, they were quick to provide a solution," states Janice Moss, Assistant Director of the Christian Service Center.
"We were looking for a fun yet worthwhile team-building exercise. When we learned of the Center's needs, it just made sense to roll up our sleeves, assemble the bikes and donate them. It was one of those instances when everything came together and benefitted both sides. We felt enriched after the experience, and the Center was able to use our donation to help others," explains Stanton Davis, V.P. of Marketing for Avadian.
