ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) -- Employees at Capital Credit Union, in Ashwaubenon, are making a difference.

Their goal is to raise money for a homeless shelter in Green Bay and Appleton.

The "rooftop challenge" started Wednesday.

Two Capitol Credit Union vice presidents will continue to ask for donations throughout the day even thought they surpassed their goal.

They'll also camp out on the roof overnight.

The president of Capital Credit Union says, so far, they've raised more than $6,000.

"Our employees are very passionate about how they spend their time and we support them completely when it comes to volunteering and taking care of people and doing the right thing is our tag line for capital and there can't be a better way to show support to people in need," said Tom Young, Capital Credit Union president and CEO.

The overall goal is to raise $20,000 for the month of May. This is the second year for the event.
