Helping Out a Great Cause

Hi folks,

As your local community credit union in Licking County, we always do our part to help the Licking County community. From our annual cell phone drive, which is coming up in October, to Elves in Action, Give With Us, Adopting Families, Cleaning up the Bike Path and much more … but when one of our own employees’ volunteers themselves to go out and raise money for a cause they believe in-well, I think that’s pretty special too.

Tina Six, an employee here at Hopewell Federal, is on a one-woman quest to raise money to help in the fight against blood cancers, like Lymphoma and Leukemia. She’s been at it for a few months now-and working hard. She is raising money to run a 13.1  mile race in Columbus on October 18th. Her goal is to raise $1700 and she’s got quite a ways to go, to achieve it. She needs your help!

This is all part of Team In Training, she’s never actually been a full fledged “runner” before, she’s been training for several months. Now, I run, only when chased, just kidding… but seriously, the thought of taking on a challenge like this is pretty remarkable. And, I know so many of us, have been touched by cancer. So, I thought it would be appropriate to post her  efforts-and ask for your assistance in helping our employee, REACH HER GOAL!  She’s even recruited some of our other employees to help out with a big fundraiser this weekend!

So, it’s been raining a lot this week-and we all probably need our cars washed… well, say NO more! This Saturday, at our North 21st street office-Hopewell Federal employees will be hosting a CAR WASH from 1 to 4 p.m. It would be great if you could come out and support this worthwhile cause-if you don’t have time to get it washed-donations are always accepted.

The Licking County community is always so willing to help those in need, won’t you take the time to support this great cause? If you or someone you know has been touched by blood cancer, stop out and see the crew on Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m on North 21st street. Remember, it only takes one person to make a difference, but with many, we can do so much more!

You can follow Tina’s journey on twitter and her blog-tinasixtnt.info.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
