“Part of what makes the Rochester area so strong is the incredible effort put into the schools within this community. The RCS Foundation Hometown Hustle is a fun way to support the schools and meet the community. We are thrilled to once again be the presenting sponsor and kicking off Hometown Hustle right here at our Chief Headquarters,” said Chief Financial President and CEO Tom Dluzen. “Seeing hundreds gather to support the schools is inspiring. The Chief team is looking forward to ‘hustling’ alongside residents, teachers, local leaders and supporters.”

Local families, businesses, and community partners contribute to the success of the Hometown Hustle.

“We are so honored to be partnering with our platinum sponsor, Chief Financial Credit Union, and other patrons who recognize the value of supporting our schools.
