As a co-operative credit union, we’re all about people helping people. Doing good is something we take seriously! Community is one of our six core values, and we promise to respectfully support the communities we serve.
Our charitable efforts improve the education and quality of life for the residents in our community through fund raising, event partnerships and free financial wellness events. We care about our community because after all, we live here and work here too!
In 2018, we will be supporting the following organizations, rotating quarterly in this order:
Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Midlands
Kicking off the year with Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Midlands, has been lots of fun! Also, very busy with 4 events - WOW! Our delicious 10th Annual "Souper Bowl" fundraising cook-off, staff competed to have their soup dubbed as the best! Then our branches dressed up for a Spirit Week complete with cheerleaders and leprechauns, raising money and awareness! Putting our financial knowledge to use, we created an interactive learning event for the 'bigs & littles' of BBBS, calling it Money the Name of the Game. The teens had a great time playing Minute to Win It games while learning budgeting skills. Completing our fundraising was a candy sale that went on in our branches. Then staff celebrated the end of the quarter by participating in the charity hosted event, Bowl for Kids' Sake. Our total donated from employees and members was $2,018!
The goal of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Midlands is to develop positive friendships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. The funds will stay in the local area and provide children with a mentor to help them change their lives for the better!
