Community Center

 

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:

Catch up on everything we did in 2017:

Child Saving Institute

We ended the year supporting Child Saving Institute as our 4th quarter charity.  Starting out in our Halloween costumes, staff had a day of office fun while donating to the cause! Then out came the tinsel, lights, and ornaments as we transformed the Child Saving Institute into a winter wonderland - their kids loved it! Our branches also decked out with our annual Giving Tree which brought in 165 toys for the kids! Staff rocked around the tree with an "ugly" competition, donating funds to wear tacky holiday sweaters.

Our final event involved the whole community, we brought hashtag printers to Westroads Mall - a first for Omaha! People came out to take a selfie, it printed through a hashtag printer, then they added it to our community mural with a hand-written message of kindness. Each selfie taken at the event donated $1 to Child Saving Institute. We named them Selfless Selfies! Leading to our grand total of $1,216 donated!

2 Event Sponsorships, $1,216 + 165 Toys Donated!

Hands, Hearts, & Paws

Our 3rd quarter charity partner was Hands, Hearts, & Paws. This was the first year we teamed with them and we had lots of fun! We hosted the Dog Days of Summer photo contest through KMTV's Morning Blend, we donated $1 to each photo submitted (click to watch the segment). In August, we held a community event, inviting members & friends to help us make tie blankets for Hands, Hearts, & Paws dogs! Lastly, we held a supply drive in our branch lobbies to support the foster families. 

We were able to donate $1,024 and 26 tie blankets along with a few supplies and treats! This supports their mission to finding our fur friends forever homes!


3 Event Sponsorships, $1,024 + 26 Blankets Donated!

ALS in the Heartland

For another year, our 2nd quarter sponsorship was with ALS in the Heartland. We did a lot this quarter! Starting with supporting their 11th annual Walk for the Cause. It rained but that didn't stop them from getting a big turnout. We held a 50/50 raffle at each of our locations then continued the lobby fundraising with a candy sale. We enjoyed a hot June day sponsoring one of their holes at the ALS golf tournament. Ending the quarter with a spirit week which included a throwback Ice Bucket Challenge! Employee and member efforts helped raise $1,772 in donations!

Sadly there is no cure for ALS and the average lifespan after diagnosis is only 2-5 years.  ALS in the Heartland strives to offer the highest quality of support and care for ALS patients in the local community. 

 

Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Midlands

2017 marks the second year we supported Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Midlands as our 1st quarter charity. We began fundraising with our 9th annual employee "Souper Bowl", a cook-off where staff compete to have their soup dubbed as the best! Then we raised awareness and funds by hosting a Spirit Week at our branches, dressing to crazy themes each day including an 80's themed throwback. Completing our fundraising was a candy sale that went on in our lobbies. 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 $2,318!

The goal of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Midlands is to keep kids in school and help them realize their potential. The funds will stay in the local area and provide children with a mentor to help them change their lives for the better!
