All 2023 proceeds will benefit
Camp Freedom

Each year, we select a different charity as our fundraising recipient.

The mission of Camp Freedom is simple – to heal heroes through outdoor adventures. Camp Freedom is an adventure camp for disabled Veterans and First Responders, their family members, and Gold Star families providing quality hunting, shooting sports, fishing, hiking, biking, and other year-round outdoor activities. These activities remove individuals from clinical settings into the healing environment of the outdoors and nature. Camp Freedom also promotes the social well-being of the participants through peer-to-peer interaction, camaraderie, and outdoor adventures. Activities are led by Camp Freedom's staff and experienced volunteers. Camp Freedom provides services to other nonprofits who have a similar mission for a collective impact.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 in donations! We are asking for your help by attending our fundraising event as well as, donations through our branches or GoFundMe.

The #netcares Team

The #netcares Team is made up of employees from diverse departments with the same goal: helping our local community. Giving back to our community is a high priority at NET Credit Union. Aside from the free financial literacy seminars we provide to our Preferred Partner Groups and community, NET is fortunate enough to be able to give to those in need in a variety of ways.
