Langley Federal Credit Union is proud to support the Hampton Roads community. In 2018, the combined charitable giving efforts of Langley Federal Credit Union and the Langley for Families Foundation amounted to over $871,000. A total of 111 unique charitable organizations and 40 individuals were recipients of these funds.
2018 was a particularly hard year for the foodbanks in the Hampton Roads community. To do our part and fight hunger, Langley is proud to have donated over $30,000 and 2,000+lbs of food.
Thank you Langley Federal Credit Union for standing beside us in the fight against hunger. Your partnership with the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank means families living in food insecure homes will get the nourishment they need to thrive and live a healthy life. Because of you, our neighbors will feel a sense of hope and comfort, rather than facing the anxiety of not knowing where their next meal is coming from. Your support makes a significant difference in our community and we are grateful everyday.
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, like the 17th Annual 94.9 The Point Radiothon. This year, Langley team members volunteered over 50 hours of their time to answer phones and solicit donations to support CHKD. 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 $41,425 for the Langley for Families Foundation, and these funds were distributed to 32 worthy non-profit organizations of our employees choosing.
Being there for our neighbors is important, too. In the fall of 2018, Langley donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts after Hurricane Florence.
Supporting education in Hampton Roads has always been important to Langley Federal Credit Union. In 2018, Langley provided $45,000 in scholarships through our partnerships with schools like Christopher Newport University and Hampton University. Learn more about our scholarship programs, here.
Through Langley's Teacher Mini-Grant program, educators have the chance to put their big ideas into action. Each year, Langley awards $15,000 in thirty $500 grants to teachers in the community who have demonstrated their innovation and creativity in the classroom.
