(Fountain Hills, Ariz.- Nov. 3, 2015)- Several members of Washington Federal’s Fountain Hills branch stepped out of the office and into the local community on October 24 to celebrate the 7th Annual Fountain Hills Make a Difference Day, raking and cleaning up the yards of those in need. Make a Difference Day is a nationally recognized initiative founded by USA Today that encourages groups and individuals to come together to serve their local communities. It is the largest national community day of service.
“Washington Federal believes that the relationships we have with our local communities are as important as those we share with our customers, stockholders and employees,” said Sylvia Castillero, branch manager. “It is with this goal that the Washington Federal Foundation was founded at the national level – and our ‘Washington Federal Focus on Arizona’ community outreach program on the local level.”
Together, the Washington Federal Foundation and Washington Federal Focus on Arizona outreach programs work to fundraise for, volunteer with and facilitate direct giving to community-based nonprofits serving the needs of low and moderate-income individuals.
