It’s a wonderful thing when organizations come together to support and help others, and that’s what this video is about. Yes, it’s an eye-catching, effective vehicle wrap, and yes, it will be used to transport children to enriching, character developing events. But, there’s a bigger picture — the great example set by the Health Care Professional Federal Credit Union (HCPFCU). This is what civic responsibility looks like, and these are people who care.
According to HCPFCU’s website:
“We at HCPFCU care greatly about our community in which we live and work. We gladly support non-profit organizations and groups in the area.”
It seems everyone’s heard of The Boys and Girls Club, but what do they do? They provide recreational and educational programs for youth, but that’s not all the modern Boys and Girls Clubs offer. The Club provides leadership training and education; for example, identifying youths at risk of dropping out of school and giving them the tools and direction to graduate. They have health and lifestyle initiatives with programs such as Date Smart, a class for teens about creating a “Mutually supportive relationship free of violence.” The club is involved with gang prevention and intervention, Latino outreach, the arts, sports, robo-tech, and much more. Their mission statement may say it best:
“To enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
- A safe place to learn and grow
- Ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals
- Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences
- Hope and opportunity
If you’re in Wayne County and see the HCPCU Boys and Girls Club van – you’re seeing a lot more than a beautifully wrapped van; you’re seeing civic pride and team work in action.
