During the month of October, Firefly Credit Union raised funds in support of The Firefly Sisterhood, an organization that fosters connections between women recently diagnosed with breast cancer and Survivors.

"Shortly after the credit union changed their name to Firefly, they were approached by The Firefly Sisterhood with admiration over the namesake and hopes that the two can join forces. Firefly Credit Union enjoys giving back to their community and this partnership became a great fit," according to a press release from Firefly Credit Union.  

During the fundraising month, employees hosted several charitable events including a "casual for a cause" jean day, bake sale, hot chocolate/coffee bar, and chili cook-off. In total, $2,231 was raised to donate to The Firefly Sisterhood. 

“We are always looking for more opportunities to give back to their community – and with a name like “'Firefly', we had no hesitation,” Firefly Credit Union President/CEO Bill Raker said. “This is a great organization, supporting a great cause and we are proud to share a name, and partnership with them.”
