Eglin Federal Credit Union once again supported and participated in the United Way Emerald Coast’s 28th Annual Day of Caring.

  • Twenty-three employees painted and landscaped at the Emerald Coast Science Center in Fort Walton Beach and at the Crestview Manor in Crestview on Friday, Jan. 14.
  • This year’s Day of Caring aligned with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, as well as the National Day of Service celebrated on Monday, Jan. 17.

“In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” said United Way Emerald Coast’s President and CEO Kelly Jasen. “Eglin Federal Credit Union’s employees continuously exemplify a spirit of giving back to the community, and we cannot thank them enough. Painting in the Emerald Coast Science Center and the Crestview Manor was extremely helpful to our local partners, saving them time and money. It’s a wonderful way to give back, which ultimately benefits the people in Okaloosa County.”

Eglin Federal Credit Union has sponsored and participated in this event for over 17 years, and employees have painted, cleaned, organized, gardened and more to help fill the needs of our community.

“This was a special day for a number of our employees to help the United Way Emerald Coast with projects around Okaloosa County at local non-profits,” said VP Membership and Community Development Neko Stubblefield. “We look forward to the Day of Caring every year and hope our service at the Emerald Coast Science Center and Crestview Manor has made a positive impact. Giving back through service is one way to enhance our community!”
