American Heritage Credit Union’s Green Team held two Adopt-A-Highway Fall Clean-Up events in the Northeast and Lansdale. The committee also held its sixth annual coat drive to support the Military Order of the Purple Heart, and collected 150 new and gently used coats. The committee also collected 120 gently used sneakers during the donation drive to benefit Sanative Soles, which supports “marginalized” youth in the community.
The American Heritage Green Team holds a variety of volunteer events throughout the year to carry out its initiatives of beautifying and support the communities American Heritage serves while encouraging the credit union and its associates to become more environmentally friendly.
More than 50 American Heritage employees participated on the annual Green Team fall clean-up events. Volunteers cleaned more than 2 miles of Frankford Avenue as well as a 2-mile stretch of Broad Street in Lansdale.
“American Heritage truly cares about our community’s safety, wellness and cleanliness. We encourage our associates to take part in these programs to help improve the lives of the people who make up our community,” said Bruce K. Foulke, president and CEO of American Heritage. “Thanks to the efforts of our Green Team committee and American Heritage associates, many more miles of local highways are cleaner and safer, and our local veterans and their families will receive much-needed coats and jackets for the upcoming winter season.”
