Nusenda Community Day

Since our beginning, Nusenda Credit Union has been making a positive difference in the lives of our members and the communities we serve. We’re dedicated to improving the well-being of all New Mexicans, and we’re working hard to address their critical needs, which is why we launched Community Day in 2017. This day is set aside for Nusenda employees to demonstrate one of our core values of volunteerism by spending time helping local community partners.

Since its inception four years ago, 842 Nusenda employees have spent 2,744 hours of their time working with 25 partner organizations and nonprofits throughout the state. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Community Day 2020 did not allow for in-person volunteer activities, yet 156 Nusenda employees still donated $11,466 to seven organizations, and Nusenda matched dollar-to-dollar a set contribution for each partner, totaling over $25,466!

This year, Community Day adapted to accommodate the challenges presented by state and CDC mandates. Nusenda is offering employees the opportunity to make a positive impact by joining together at four Nusenda locations throughout the state. Employees will collectively fill 1,000 bags to give to children experiencing foster care or homelessness. Employees can also have an opportunity to participate by donating to the eight organizations, either through giving needed items or via monetary donation. This year’s Community Day partners are:

  • McKinney-Vento: The McKinney-Vento Homeless Program offers services to homeless children and their families throughout New Mexico’s Public Schools.

  • NM Kids Matter: New Mexico Kids Matter is a Bernalillo County chapter of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for children who have been abused or neglected, and have entered foster care, to ensure their needs are being met and their voices are being heard.

  • New Day: New Day Youth and Family Services works with young people in the Albuquerque area, ages 11-25, who experience marginalization, disconnection, and homelessness.

  • NMCAN: NMCAN leverages community partnerships and volunteerism in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to improve children and youth’s experiences in foster care and to improve their transition to adulthood.

  • Jardin de Los Niños: Jardin de los Niños mission is to create new possibilities for homeless and near homeless children and their families through loving childcare, education, and the use of community resources, in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

  • Families and Youth, Inc.: FYI’s mission is to promote a safer and healthier community by focusing on families and children in southern New Mexico.

  • Youth Shelters and Family Services: Youth Shelters and Family Services’ mission is to deliver life-changing shelter and support for homeless, runaway, and in-crisis youth in northern New Mexico.

Each day New Mexicans are devoting their time, energy, and perseverance to help our state succeed. Nusenda Credit Union's work is just a part of the overall effort — and it's a honor and privilege to serve New Mexico and its residents. It’s The Power of WE® in action!
