What ‘People Helping People’ Means to Clark County Credit Union

CCCU passionately supports community. This means being able to provide the best products and services for our members to help them reach their financial goals and dreams. To expand on the idea of People Helping People, which is the credit union motto, they created the CCCU Cares Committee. This group organizes the support of local charity groups and organizations while allowing CCCU employees an opportunity to give back to their local community with company paid volunteer time off. This also allows our membership to get involved in the giving spirit. Here’s a wrap-up of our year and the participation from our staff of nearly 200 employees:
