Charter Oak prides itself on Community Outreach & Involvement and realizes that sometimes a little sweat equity, time, or an extra hand is needed just as much as monetary support. That’s why Charter Oak established a Community Involvement Team comprised of employees looking to volunteer and to make a difference in New London and Windham counties. Through Community Involvement, employees can work toward making our local communities better places to live and work.
In addition, each Friday, many of Charter Oak’s employees pay a fee to dress casually in support of individuals, families, and community groups in need of emergency funding. Thousands of dollars are donated each year, which have helped families fill their oil tanks in the winter or put food in their refrigerator. Donations have also helped to support homeless shelters in need of immediate assistance.
Should you or an organization be experiencing financial difficulty, please submit your written request detailing your hardship to:
Community Outreach Committee
Charter Oak Federal Credit Union
1055 Hartford Turnpike
Waterford, CT 06385
All applicants will be notified in writing of the Community Outreach Committee’s decision. All requests remain confidential.
Weekly updates are posted each Friday on our Facebook page.
