Decatur Earthmover Credit Union Names “Charity of the Year”

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR – Decatur Earthmover Credit Union has named Baby TALK its “Charity of the Year” and will present the organization a check on Wednesday, July 1.

Earthmover employees choose a charity to support each year through fundraising events, employee giving, volunteering and partnership. They have been working since January 2015 through community bake sales, employee “Blue Jean Fridays” and a 5K Glow Run to benefit Baby TALK.

DECU's Business Development Representative Jes Younghouse explains they chose Baby TALK because of its positive impact on families in the community. Baby TALK works to identify family needs in the community and provide resources to better their livelihood.

“At DECU, we love helping families achieve financial goals, and we wanted to work alongside an organization where kids and families are the primary focus,” Younghouse says.

Director of Development at Baby TALK Betsy Osman notes the impact Earthmover has had on the organization.

“At the end of the year, DECU will have been one of our largest supporters – both through financial contributions and the number of employee volunteer hours they've contributed. They truly have become partners through this experience,” Osman says.

The check presentation will take place on July 1 at 11:30 AM at the Baby TALK Office located at 500 East Lakeshore Drive in Decatur.
