MidSouth Community Federal Credit Union believes that our community is stronger together, especially during difficult times. In the midst of the current COVID-19 crisis, we are committed to helping others who have been negatively impacted. Our goal is to spread kindness and ease the burdens of those around us.
MidSouth Community has partnered with the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) and the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation to take part in the #CreditUnionsCareChallenge. We have given our team members a $25 VISA gift card to invest back into our local community.
Stay tuned throughout the month as we share their acts of kindness within Middle Georgia.
