Tower Federal Credit Union held its sixth annual Employee Appreciation Day and Casual for Kids Day fundraiser Sept. 19 at its Laurel headquarters.
Tower employees, dressed causally in jeans, sneakers and their favorite sports team shirt, enjoyed a tailgate-theme luncheon followed by games and outdoor activities. The event raised $2,800 for the Johns Hopkins Children's Center in Baltimore, a member hospital of the Children's Miracle Network.
On Sept. 22, Tower Federal Credit Union employees walked in the American Heart Association's 2012 Heart Walk at Centennial Park, in Ellicott City, to raise awareness and funds for the cause. Tower donated the team registration fee and a team of 16 Tower employees and 13 family members participated in the walk.
Employees who walked earned Healthy Reward Points, part of Tower's award-winning Wealth of Wellness employee wellness program. Through the program, employees earn points for participating in healthy activities such as annual physical exams, health fairs, exercise, eating right, health screenings and fitness classes, and receive a gift card after they accumulate a certain number of points.
