Park Community Credit Union Supports Habitat for Humanity with Truck Donation
LOUISVILLE, KY — Park Community Credit Union presented Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville with a 2016 Chevrolet truck at their recent Building Hope event. Rob Locke, Louisville Habitat CEO and Leslie Woods, Director of Construction, joined Jim Spradlin, CEO, and David Shadburne, Executive Vice President, both of Park Community Credit Union, to celebrate the truck donation and receive the keys.
Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville has worked with local families to build and preserve affordable housing solutions since 1985. Through partnerships with volunteers and donors, Habitat has been able to provide stable, affordable housing for over 2,200 people including 1,600 children in Metro Louisville. This year the organization celebrated the 500th Habitat home in Louisville. The Park Community Credit Union truck donation will allow Habitat to transport building materials and tools to the construction sites for future homes in the community.
“Park Community is committed to making a difference in the lives of our members, communities, and staff,” said Jim Spradlin, CEO, Park Community Credit Union. “We stand by the principle of “People Helping People” and look for ways to spread that philosophy, and we look for opportunities to partner with groups that share these values.”
“Habitat for Humanity is an organization that we have long admired and are honored to be able to provide this truck in an effort to support their ongoing mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope,” Spradlin added.
Park Community Credit Union has made it a mission to help the communities they serve. The donated vehicle is co-branded with the Habitat for Humanity logo, Park Community Credit Union logo, and the phrase, “Community Passion in Motion.” This phrase captures the credit union’s desire to help the community and to be a driving force for positive change. It also ties back to the industry wide credit union motto of “People Helping People.”
“We are incredibly proud to partner with Park Community Credit Union to increase our capacity to serve local families,” said Rob Locke, CEO, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville. “Without the support of community-minded businesses like Park Community, we could not accomplish our mission of building homes that can transform a family’s life for generations.”
Over the last four years Park Community has donated over $288,000 for the benefit of multiple charities. Recently Park Community provided several vehicles for charities located in Kentucky. A Dodge Caravan was presented to Refuge for Women and trucks were presented to Habitat for Humanity of Lexington and Habitat for Humanity of Madison and Clark Counties. In addition, Park Community offers several co-branded debit cards, which benefit Kosair Charities, the Kentucky Humane Society, Lexington Humane Society, Bellarmine University and Holy Cross High School.
