Park City donates turkey dinners to families in need
Park City Credit Union (PCCU) recently gave away more than 80 turkey dinners to families in need, continuing their 11-year-long tradition of giving back to the community at Thanksgiving.
The success of the program is due to a team effort by Park City Credit Union and the community. Each year, the credit union invites community members to nominate friends, family, and neighbors to be the recipient of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. This year, Park City was flooded with nominations.
Park City CEO Val Mindak shared how the turkey dinners are meant to spread care and positivity in the Northwoods area.
“At Park City, we care about our community’s personal lives and happiness just as much as their financial success,” Mindak said. “Every year our team looks forward to this initiative. Through these turkey dinners, we help local families find financial relief and joy during what can be a stressful time of the year.”
“It also allows us to support our community in ways outside of our daily scope,” she said.
Park City staff got together to sort the turkeys, stuffing, pies, dinner rolls, gravy, and potatoes in order to provide families with a timely and delicious meal. The turkey dinners are part of the Park City Cares initiative that celebrates the credit union’s members and hometowns by completing random acts of kindness across the area.
