Some highlights of our community commitment include:

  • International Credit Union Day
  • First Friday, Downtown Gadsden

  • Northeast Alabama Heart Walk - American Heart Association
  • Superman 5k
  • Kickoff Classic for the Kids Golf Tournament
  • Relay for Life
  • Noble Street Festival

Our Commitment
