SDCCU, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, is proud to announce that the County of San Diego has officially recognized SDCCU as a Live Well San Diego partner. Live Well San Diego, a cutting-edge, countywide initiative energized by a public-private partnership between local businesses and the County of San Diego government, focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles and safer communities throughout San Diego County.
“We are honored to be recognized as a Live Well San Diego partner in collaboration with a growing network of Live Well supporters,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “In addition, we are grateful for the acknowledgment that we are going above and beyond and taking our positive efforts to the next level for the greatest collective impact through a shared purpose. At SDCCU, our dedication to building a healthier, safer and thriving community is embedded in our corporate culture and extends outward into the community.”
SDCCU is the first financial institution to join Live Well San Diego and was presented with a proclamation from the San Diego County Board of Supervisors in honor of the Live Well partnership at the recent grand opening of its branch located in Escondido, Calif., a North County community in San Diego.
This prestigious designation, coveted by businesses and organizations throughout the county, is presented only after demonstrating a commitment to adopt proven strategies that will improve the health and safety of local residents. The County’s innovative and comprehensive long-term strategy on wellness, implemented with the assistance of influential local businesses that have the resources to motivate community involvement, has three components of healthy, safe and thriving.
In bestowing the designation, County officials recognized SDCCU’s implementation of a number of innovative and creative projects that are making Live Well San Diego’s vision of a healthy, safe and thriving San Diego County a reality.
“SDCCU is a dedicated community partner and will continue to be a leader of change in the community by engaging in these activities and seeking new opportunities to improve the health, safety and well-being of all San Diegans,” said Halleck.
