Community

First Castle FCU is very active in the communites we serve. Throughout the year we volunteer in several community events. Some of the events that we are involved in are the Relay For Life, Monster Mash, Wooden Boat Festival, Covington Food Bank, American Heart Association and much more. If you would like First Castle to participate in a community event please email detailed information to shoffstadt@firstcastlefcu.org 

Relay For Life is an all-night community event where teams of families, friends, co-workers, school, or church groups can walk to raise money for cancer research, education, advocacy and patient programs. We participate to honor cancer survivors, pay tribute to those lost to cancer and to help raise money to help fight cancer right here in our community!
