Georgia United Credit Union Receives International Award for Acts of Service

Apr 14, 2021

DULUTH, GA — Georgia United Credit Union has received the 2021 Communitas Award for Excellence and Leadership in Community Service for their “See the Difference, Be the Difference” Team Day service project.

The international Communitas Awards recognizes exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals that are unselfishly giving of themselves and their resources and those that are changing how they do business to benefit their communities.

Communitas winners are recognized for specific programs involving volunteerism, philanthropy and ethical, sustainable business practices. The credit union’s team members worked with their colleagues in their branch or department to “Be the Difference” by participating in a service project that positively impacts local communities. This project allowed team members to serve 28 nonprofits throughout Georgia.

“We are so excited and honored to receive international recognition from the Communitas Awards for our commitment to serving the Georgia communities,” said Debbie Smith, president and CEO. “This would not be possible without all our team members and their servant's hearts. This award reflects our mission to serve and our purpose to enrich the lives of our members, team members and local communities. We look forward to continuing this service project for years to come.”
