Lockheed Federal Credit Union Gives Fresh Look to Nonprofit, BCR, Through Its Annual Partner-To-Paint Community Project

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Lockheed Federal Credit Union (LFCU) employees will trade in pens for paintbrushes Thursday, April 14, to give the 48-year-old nonprofit BCR "a place to grow" facility a facelift. BCR provides day activities and extended daycare programs to children and adults with developmental disabilities. BCR is located at 230 E. Amherst Dr. in Burbank.

Approximately 30 LFCU employee volunteers will spend the day giving the BCR facility a new exterior coat of paint through LFCU's community project, Partner to Paint. Initiated in 2006, the project is designed to provide assistance to the community by painting -- free of charge -- a local structure in need with an exterior coat of paint.

"Our employees are honored to help improve BCR's facilities," said Dave Styler, president and CEO of LFCU. "We appreciate the opportunity to assist in our community, and it's especially gratifying to benefit an organization that does such a remarkable job serving Burbank and the surrounding communities."

LFCU offers a Volunteer-Time-Off program to its employees, giving them company paid-time-off to volunteer in the community. Each employee can receive up to eight hours per year to volunteer during the work day.

"We are so pleased to receive this community service from Lockheed Federal Credit Union," said Lonna Grant, executive director of BCR "a place to grow." "The credit union is a great contributor in our community and we're excited to have their employees give our building a fresh look."

This BCR facility paint project is made possible in part through the generous support of Tim Tilton of T&T Improvements Painting Company, Dunn Edwards Paints and Santoro's Submarine Sandwiches.

BCR "a place to grow," formerly known as Burbank Center for the Retarded, opened its doors in 1963 as a day program serving adults with developmental disabilities at the First Congregational Church of Burbank. BCR's programs focus on developing socially appropriate and responsible behavior, basic skills of daily living, problem solving, nutrition, physical fitness, and more.
