When you bank with First Flight, you’re supporting local organizations helping people right here in NC. It’s important to us to be a part of the community. We are a local credit union and most of our members live right here. That’s why we believe in community reinvestment, giving back to the people who trust us everyday.

First Flight is proud to announce our new partnership with the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina. Their mission to “Keep Families Close” during difficult times is one that we support wholeheartedly. So many families in North Carolina have found themselves in unthinkable situations as they worry over the health of a child, and the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina has been there time and again for families in need.

In 2019 alone, the two houses hosted 565 families for a total of 8,449 family night stays. Admirably and to the benefit of our communities, they have continued to help families in 2020 despite the challenges of this undertaking during a global pandemic with increased safety measures and fewer personnel to assist. For their dedication to our communities in the 33 counties they served last year alone, we want to show our deepest appreciation and give them our support. Learn more here!

When you choose First Flight, you are choosing to support the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina and many other organizations and programs making our communities better places for everyone. From local Boys and Girls Clubs and financial literacy programs to supporting local business and fundraising events, First Flight is dedicated to reinvesting in our communities and we couldn’t do it without your help. That’s why being a member makes a difference.
