Loso welcomed new CEO/President, Chris Gomez, to HFCU and to the Rutland community, Gomez has been on the job at HFCU for just 6 weeks. In speaking to the crowd, Gomez announced an extra special gift for the evening. 

It was with great pleasure CEO/President, Chris Gomez and SVP, Carrie Allen presented 5 local nonprofits, with $1,000 donations on behalf of Heritage Family Cares 4 You.
