  • Every Friday when you visit a TFCU branch, you’ll notice our staff dressed down. Our staff dresses down for local organizations and charities through our Dress Down Program!

Staff participate in this program by donating money on a weekly basis in order to dress down. Those funds are then used by our Public Relations Committee to make donations throughout the areas that we serve.

One Friday each month, TFCU's Fund Friday, our staff choose one organization/charity to receive all of the proceeds from that Friday's Dress Down Day. This month, our staff selected Amos House in Providence!

Amos House is a nonprofit social service agency that provides direct support for men, women, and children in Rhode Island who are hungry, homeless and in crisis.
