Xplore FCU Supports Animal Rescue New Orleans
For the seventh consecutive year, Xplore FCU held a month long fundraiser supporting Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO). This is a volunteer run organization whose mission is to save and accommodate lost and abandoned animals in the New Orleans area. They are the only non-kill shelter in our region.
Activities implemented to drive support included, photos of ARNO animals displayed in branches and e-blasts featuring a "Pet of the Week". Promotional items were also offered to members and employees to help raise funds. ARNO & Xplore logoed t-shirts were the hottest item with several sold. Paw prints which members and employees could write their names on were also offered and posted throughout the branches. Through these fundraising efforts, over $900.00 was raised for this worthy cause.
Xplore FCU's efforts culminated with a Spring Pet Adoption Event held at its branch in Metairie. Free pizza and snacks were offered. Several dogs and a bunny were on display at the event and attendees were able to visit with the animals and place adoption applications for the ones they fell most in love with. Many applications were generated in addition to increasing awareness about ARNO. The credit union was even able to find a home for two of their four legged friends!Go to main navigation
