Langley Federal Credit Union is proud to support the Hampton Roads community. In 2020, the combined charitable giving efforts of Langley Federal Credit Union and the Langley for Families Foundation amounted to over $1,400,000. A total of 127 unique charitable organizations and 97 individuals were recipients of these funds.
One of our largest assets here at Langley is our dedicated, hard-working, and passionate team members! We continually aim to mobilize our employees to multiply our impact through volunteering efforts year-round. Langley Federal Credit Union is proud to have supported many events in the past, like the Annual 94.9 The Point Radiothon. In 2020, Langley hosted its first Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 20, 2020. In one day, 218 participants volunteered 1,214 hours. We're happy to be able to support in more ways than one, and help build a stronger, healthier community with these great partners.
Our employees are the backbone of our Credit Union, and they truly make a difference each day. Even more than that, our Payroll Deduction Program raised $43,800 for the Langley for Families Foundation, and these funds were distributed to 38 worthy non-profit organizations of our employees choosing.
Being there for our neighbors is important, too. In 2020, Langley and Langley for Families Foundation acted quickly and efficiently to help the community respond to COVID-19.
Supporting education in Hampton Roads has always been important to Langley Federal Credit Union.
