Business After Hours Headshot Event
CRCU hosted the Baytown After Hours event, where many local businesses gathered to enjoy food and drinks while networking with one another. The event provided a stunning venue, and CRCU went the extra mile by offering a complimentary professional headshot booth. Our skilled photographers captured the perfect shots, and attendees left with beautiful headshots they can proudly display on their website and social media profiles. Thank you to everyone who joined us for this unforgettable evening!
Monthly City of Baytown Animal Shelter
Making a positive impact on our community is an ongoing commitment for CRCU. Every month, our team of dedicated volunteers visits the City of Baytown Animal Shelter to lend a hand. We roll up our sleeves and get to work cleaning kennels and caring for the animals. It's heartwarming to see the wagging tails and purring cats, and our volunteers work tirelessly to ensure that each animal receives the love and attention they deserve. We're proud to make a difference in our community, and we encourage others to get involved and join us in supporting this worthy cause!
Flowers to Nurses
CRCU believes in showing appreciation and gratitude to our local first responders who work tirelessly to keep our community safe. This Valentine's Day, our team decided to spread love and beauty by delivering flowers to the hardworking nurses over at Houston Methodist Baytown. The nurses were overjoyed and touched by our gesture, and we were thrilled to have been able to show our appreciation in this small but meaningful way. We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to those who give so much to our community and look forward to continuing to support our first responders in any way we can.
Free Gas for a Year
At CRCU, we value our members and are always looking for ways to give back. Throughout 2022, we ran an exciting promotion where members who took out a new or used auto loan with us were automatically entered for a chance to win gas for a year. We were thrilled to see so many of our members take advantage of this opportunity and were delighted to announce the lucky winner at the end of the year. This promotion was just one way we showed our appreciation to our members and we look forward to offering more exciting opportunities in the future.

Annual Christmas Gift Drive for Lamar Elementary
