Mayo Employees Federal Credit Union Gives Back to Rochester Community.

For the seventh year in a row, Mayo Employees Federal Credit Union (MEFCU) gave back to the Rochester community as a part of Caring It Forward Day on Monday, October 11, 2021.

As a service to its members, MEFCU provided free, secure document shredding throughout the day, collecting over 4,600 pounds, or more than two tons of paper to recycle and shred.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made getting a flu vaccination more important than ever. MEFCU’s community partner, the Hy-Vee Healthy You Mobile Unit, provided a Flu Shot Clinic from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. In just three hours, 98 people received vaccinations.

“Every year, I am impressed with the ways our staff and community come together to give back, and 2021 is no exception,” stated CEO Mary Hansen.

Caring It Forward Day is a statewide initiative in Minnesota; giving Credit Unions the chance to give back to the communities they serve.
