“We’re celebrating our new branch in a way that aligns with our credit union’s values,” said Tim Lord, Waukee Branch Manager. “One of our priorities in a new community is to build partnerships and find ways to contribute. Veridian Gives Back allows us to include input from our new neighbors in that effort.”
Donations will be presented at a ribbon cutting event for the new branch on Tuesday, April 16 at 4:00 p.m. The event is open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
