Denver Community Credit Union was the proud Hotline Sponsor for the second year in a row of KYGO’s Christmas Crusade, a fantastic program that was organized in 1984 by a small group of “Santa Cops.” Each year sheriff and police officers across the metro area work to spread the joy of Christmas to thousands of underprivileged children. Officers meet and select these children during their work in their communities throughout the year. KYGO’s Christmas Crusade gave all of us the chance to help these "Santa Cops" bring joy into many households in our local area by donating toys or money to the cause.
This year, thanks to our wonderful members and people from the community, we were able to raise over $2,000 in addition to toy donations. All the donations go directly towards the purchase of toys and gifts for underprivileged children in the Denver Metro area.

This is just one example of how great credit union members and members of the community were at supporting the Christmas Crusade. This was just one example. Every donation no matter how large or small makes all the difference!
Denver Community Credit Union is thrilled to announce that we were the runner up for the Mountain West Credit Union Association's Community Impact Award for our work on the Annual Back to School Fair! The Credit Union Community Impact Award is given to a credit union program that has positively affected the community in the Arizona, Colorado, or Wyoming credit union movement. The award went to Desert Schools Federal Credit Union in Arizona. Congratulations to them! The work that is done with these credit union run programs demonstrates just part of the credit union difference.
