Arsenal Credit Union employees volunteer for Habitat for Humanity St. Louis
Employees at Arsenal Credit Union recently partnered with KMOV's Home 4 the Holidays campaign to help Habitat for Humanity St. Louis build a home for a deserving family. On Nov. 11, a day the credit union was closed in observance of Veterans Day, eight Arsenal employees rolled up their sleeves and helped construction efforts on the project.
“We have a lot of big-hearted people who work at Arsenal. They’re always looking for ways to help others and are eager to do it any way they can,” said Ken Moser, vice president of marketing at Arsenal who served as group leader for the credit union’s build team. “We’ve never done an effort of this magnitude, and it’s been a rewarding experience. We’re happy to be a part of it.”
In addition to providing volunteer hours, the credit union made a $5,000 donation to the organization.
“We make a lot of charitable contributions throughout the year, but this one allowed us to work with our hands, too, and see the whole build of a new home and see it come to fruition,” noted Lori Crutchley, executive vice president at Arsenal. “We’re all about helping the community, and this is just another way for us to give back.”
Some of the tasks Arsenal employees performed included cutting and installing siding, preparing floors and cutting vinyl planks for installation and painting exterior pieces of the house.
