Leaders Credit Union, a member-owned financial cooperative based in Jackson, Tenn., spread holiday cheer with their 4th annual “From Leaders with Love” Christmas project. This season, over 100 Leaders Financial Champions performed 24 projects at the Boys and Girls Club of Jackson. Projects included deep cleaning the facility, assembling shelving, coat hooks, and foosball tables; painting and installing doors; raking leaves; spreading pea gravel; decorating for Christmas, and more. Christmas trees were also purchased for their additional locations.

“At Leaders, our mission is to make the lives of our members better,” said Todd Swims, president and CEO. “Our work at the Boys & Girls Club was simply an extension of our legacy and mission, and we are honored to be their advocate.”

Leaders released a compilation video on Giving Tuesday highlighting the projects and encouraging the community to Give Forward as well. Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Jackson Sabrina Anderson said community members may volunteer both physically and monetarily to assist the club.

“Leaders work lifted the spirits of both our staff and our kids here at the Boys and Girls Club, and we can’t say thank you enough,” Anderson said. “If every organization would give back as Leaders did, we would never have any maintenance issues.”

Financial Champions deep cleaned classrooms and common areas at the Boys & Girls Club of Jackson.
