Energize Receives Dora Maxwell Award

Energize Credit Union, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma is proud to announce it has been awarded second place by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) for the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award.

CUNA created the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award to encourage and honor credit union and chapter involvement in community projects and activities. Dora Maxwell was a community activist who committed her life to credit union development, to her community, and to serving the underserved.

Energize received recognition for its volunteer contributions to OAEC's Energy Trails Program. Oklahoma Association of Electric Coop (OAEC), in coordination with its National Association NRECA, has been sending Oklahoma Electric Coop Linemen to electrify Central & South American rural villages without power in Bolivia and Guatemala. OAEC has split 3 of the 4 annual projects with Electric Coops from another State.  From 2016 to 2019, the 4 Projects established 578 firstā€time connections of electric service with the help of 35 Oklahoma Electric Coop volunteers from 20 of the 30 Oklahoma Electric Cooperatives.

CUNA Awards Committee Chair,  Kathy Chartier said " I would like to congratulate all of the 2020 CUNA Award winners. The Committee received many impressive entries again this year. 2020 was a year like no other and credit unions showed their true colors by stepping up to give their members exceptional service in spite of a worldwide pandemic. It is the committee’s joy to be able to celebrate all that credit unions are doing for their members and communities."
