NuMark Helps Two Deserving Organizations for CU Kind Day 2023

CU Kind Day 2023

October 9, 2023 – In celebration of the fourth annual CU Kind Day, the Illinois Credit Union League (ICUL) has called upon all Illinois credit unions to roll up their sleeves and give back to the communities they serve. By participating in CU Kind Day, we aim to show our communities how “people helping people” is at the heart of the credit union movement. ICUL launched CU Kind Day in 2019 with the purpose of spreading kindness and generating awareness for the good work done by credit unions in their communities. Over the past four years, more than $318,000 has been donated to over 1,000 charitable organizations on CU Kind Day. This demonstration of cooperation and outreach has shown Illinois what the credit union difference looks like and how credit unions put their members and communities first.

NuMark Credit Union staff and family members participated on this day of kindness by conducting service projects at both the Crisis Center for South Suburbia and the Interim Housing Center for DuPagePads. Along with their in-person volunteering efforts, NuMark also held a fundraising drive at all of their locations to raise money to purchase items from both organization’s Amazon Wish List’s.

The Crisis Center for South Suburbia is a non-profit community organization that provides emergency shelter and other essential services for individuals and families victimized by domestic violence. They work to address the societal issues that contribute to domestic violence.

For 35 years, DuPagePads has remained a beacon of hope for those with little or no support while experiencing homelessness. Their mission to end homelessness in DuPage County, Illinois has become critical to the health and well-being of the community. Their signature year-round programs feed and shelter individuals and families who are homeless, connect them to case management and other services that can address the underlying cause of their homelessness.

At both organizations, NuMark helped to clean commonly used areas, organized donations and resource rooms and other tasks which were helpful to the staff there. “Serving at the Crisis Center for South Suburbia was a heartwarming experience that reaffirmed the beauty of compassion and solidarity,” said Mateo Munoz, NuMark Credit Union Card Services Specialist. “It was truly amazing to be part of a community coming together to make a positive difference in the lives of those facing crisis.” A similar sentiment was shared with us by Sharon Richardson, NuMark Credit Union’s Executive Assistant who volunteered at DuPagePads. “Spending CU Kind Day helping at the DuPagePads was enjoyable and rewarding! It was great to come together as a team and help families who need it the most.”
