Access allocated over $55,000 back to our community in 2020

Access Community First Program

Access Community Credit Union would not be here without the Amarillo family of customers who inspire us to take our community involvement a step further every year. This inspiration has driven us to establish a new program dedicated to providing a fixed percentage of our monthly earnings back to the community. Through volunteer work, charitable donations, and the support of our Access family, we welcome you to the Access Community First Program.


Check out this page as we update you on these initiatives and join us in making our community stronger through these efforts.

Providing Breakfast for Local Hospital Staff


Through our Community First Program, we partnered with Fuzzy’s Taco Shop and provided breakfast to our local hospital staff at Northwest, BSA, and the VA! Between the 3 hospitals, we helped provide over 4,000 breakfast tacos to the men and women who sacrificed so much to get us through the pandemic.

Providing Lunch for Local Hospital Staff


The Community First Committee also provided lunch multiple times throughout 2020 for our local hospital staff. We partnered with Jimmy John’s Sandwiches for each of these occasions! In total, we helped to provide over 4,000 sandwiches to feed our local hero’s during the pandemic. .




Children’s Miracle Network Shopping


The Community First Committee went shopping at Walmart and Target to purchase toys, clothes, and other items requested by our local hospitals through the Children’s Miracle Network. In total, Access was able to gather over $3,000 worth of supplies, which completed the lists requested by the hospitals!
