Humanitarian Highlight 11.12.20
Happy Humanitarian Highlight Day everyone! We’re only one day away from Friday, so hang in there! We hope you all enjoy your weekend, and most of all we hope you enjoy reading all the amazing deeds our #CUfamily has been up to lately! If you know of a credit union that has positively impacted their community, tag us and let us know so we can give them a shoutout! It is truly the season of giving in the credit union community.
Mid Oregon Credit Union was recognized by the Credit Union National Association and honored with the Alphonse Desjardins Youth and Adult Financial Education Award. They received the award for their Bite of Reality program, which teaches high school students about budgeting and money management. Awesome job, Mid Oregon CU!
This past October, Sunova members, and staff raised a grand total of $3,970 for the Made with Love program, which provides meals for those in need. The total equaled 397 meals for people throughout Winnipeg!
This past month, City & County Credit Union was on a “People Helping People” mission and was able to make donations and volunteer for various programs. They made 440 snack packs for We Can Ride, Inc., 330 senior care bags for Help At Your Door, 26 tie blankets for the Ronald McDonald House, and beautified 2 local parks! Wow, what an achievement!
