(Woodbury, MN – August 2, 2022) Ideal Credit Union is pleased to be named winner of the prestigious 2022 Dora Maxwell award for the Ideal Credit Union Feeding Our Communities initiative. The Dora Maxwell award is given annually to credit unions for outstanding service to community by the Minnesota Credit Union Network and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
“At Ideal Credit Union, we’re committed to our credit union values with the people helping people philosophy always in mind.” said Brian Sherrick, President and CEO of Ideal Credit Union. “We are proud of our role in the community as a dedicated supporter of hunger relief organizations providing accessible, localized support for people in need.”
The Ideal Credit Union Feeding Our Communities Initiative deployed employee volunteers and charitable gifts to emergency food support and basic need organizations in Woodbury, Hugo, North St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights, Eagan and Stillwater. Due to the pandemic and economic impacts on individuals and families, many charitable groups providing basic needs faced record demand for services in 2021. Ideal Credit Union worked in partnership with several community groups to meet those demands.
The Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Community Service Award was created in 1987 and recognizes credit unions for the activities they coordinate that benefit the community or a specific charity.
