At O Bee Credit Union, community isn't just a buzzword; it's a way of life. This was evident on the 29th of September when O Bee Credit Union's employees enthusiastically participated in our 2023 Day of Caring. Not only did they lend their time and energy, but they also generously sponsored the event, further amplifying their commitment to fostering positive change in their community.
We sat down and talked with O Bee about their involvement in Day of Caring. Our conversation is below. Enjoy!
