DCECU employees help build home & clean up litter

For staff members at Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union, the first half of May brought two volunteer opportunities: Midland County Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Week and an Adopt-A-Street cleanup project.

Habitat for Humanity Women Build Week

On May 8 and 10, a total of 16 DCECU employees volunteered for Midland County Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build Week, an annual event that empowers women to serve as housing construction volunteers – a Habitat for Humanity volunteer role in which women typically are significantly underrepresented, according to the organization.

Adopt-A-Street Boulevard Cleanup

On May 16, DCECU employees cleaned litter from a stretch of the boulevard area near the credit union – between East Lyon and East Patrick roads, from Lincoln Street to Washington Street, including around the bicycle and pedestrian path that runs through the boulevard – through the Adopt-A-Street program.

“Spring and summer are very active seasons for our DCECU volunteers,” said DCECU President/CEO Dennis Hanson. “As always, we are proud to serve the local community and support the efforts of our employees who enthusiastically choose to volunteer for a host of community service activities throughout the year.”
