A record 3,300-plus students applied for the opportunity to intern at PenFed, the nation’s second largest federal credit union. Attracting talent from top schools all over the country, 32 undergraduate and three graduate school students were selected to intern at PenFed’s Tysons headquarters and other PenFed locations in the Greater Washington, DC area. Several of the students are returning interns.
The interns surprised PenFed leaders attending their kick-off event with an unexpected donation of a portion of their first paychecks to the PenFed Foundation, demonstrating their inspiration from and shared beliefs in PenFed’s commitment to support charitable organizations and the communities in which it serves.
Seasoned runners and beginners alike from PenFed took to the streets of our nation’s Capitol April 2nd to participate in the annual Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run and 5K Run-Walk. This race and the Credit Union SacTown Run in Sacramento, Calif together raised $580,485 for Children’s Miracle Network. More than 100 PenFed employees volunteered their time or ran in the Cherry Blossom races. PenFed sponsored Water Stop Charley, Mile Six of the 10 mile race where volunteers provided water and inspiration to the runners.
We recently moved into our brand new Corporate Headquarters in Tyson, VA.
