2019 Charity Partners
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 and event partnerships. We care about our community because after all, we live here and work here too!
In 2019, 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! Our delicious 11th Annual "Souper Bowl" fundraising cook-off kicked off as this year's first fundraiser. Staff competed to have their soup dubbed as the best! Then our branches dressed up for a Spirit Week, raising money and awareness! Throughout the quarter a candy sale went on in our branches raising funds for BBBS kids. 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 $1,621!
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!
