Humanitarian Highlight 10.28.21
This week’s #HumanitarianHighlight is on credit unions demonstrating kindness. While all credit unions express kindness when they support their communities, these select few exemplify charitable giving for the week.
In September, Northern Credit Union donated $2,050 to Carthage Area Hospital Foundation. The donation was part of a promotion that allowed new checking account holders to donate $50 to one nonprofit of their choice and was the second donation the credit union gave to Carthage Area Hospital in 2021.
As part of the “Texoma School Spirit” promotion, Zundy Elementary School received a $3,000 award from Texoma Community Credit Union. The promotion allowed people in the 11 counties that credit unions serviced to vote for their preferred school, and Zundy Elementary School won with the most votes.
TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union donated $10,000 to the Highland Friendship Club through a grant award. The nonprofit organization focuses on aiding teenagers and adults with disabilities to thrive with friendships and general aid. The donation will help the nonprofit keep its programs and initiatives accessible remotely and in person for the coming months.
This credit union foundation awarded $20,000 in grants to Northern Virginia Community College. Northwest Federal Credit Union’s grant will aim to bolster student support programs for the College, as well as emergency relief funds for students in need.
University Federal Credit Union, in partnership with the University of Texas at Austin, gave $1,000,000 to the college as a massive grant toward the needs of the Texas One-Stop facility. This facility aims to help college students with resources such as academic aid, financial assistance, and enrollment services.
This credit union provided a $2,000,000 grant to Roof Above, a nonprofit in Charlotte that aims to combat chronic homelessness through housing, meals, drug and alcohol treatment, mental health assistance, and more. The nonprofit will use the money primarily for a new 88-unit housing building which will aim to offer permanent and affordable housing to the homeless.
All credit unions love to give, and we hope to continue to outline that. Demonstrating kindness is important in a community, and these credit unions are our personal heroes for continuing that tradition.
