Humanitarian Highlight 2.17.22

Credit Unions Feed the Soul

It’s Thursday, and time to bring you another #HumanitarianHighlight. This week we are focusing on credit unions feeding the soul of their community by donations that will literally feed those in need, and help build medical facilities for the future.

American Eagle Financial Credit Union

For a while now, American Eagle FCU has been donating money to their community with their Cash Back to the Community program. Recently they announced the 2021 fourth-quarter winners; Connecticut Cat Connection of Windsor, Cans 4-A-Cause of Middletown, and Angel of Edgewood from Hartford, who each received $9,598. That makes $105,364 donated to local nonprofits in 2021. They are continuing this awesome program through 2022!

United States Senate Federal Credit Union

As the Midwest continues to recover from the storms at the end of last year, invaluable groups like the Red Cross emergency response teams have been there to provide aid to those in need. Last month, this assistance was succored by the donations of the USSFCU, as they gave $25,000 to the American Red Cross and $30,000 to various food banks in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. It is reported that over 640,000 people in Maryland are facing food insecurity, and these donations will go a long way toward helping these communities.

All In Credit Union

At the end of last year, there were over $140,000 in grants awarded by All In CU to ten charitable organizations. The previous three years also saw more than $100,000 in such grants, donated to organizations that continue to make a positive impact on their communities. Some of the charities supported by this program recently were Coffee County Family Services and the Enterprise YMCA. These funds will help school children get clothing and hygiene supplies. The YMCA also went above and beyond by repairing one of the flood-damaged buildings.

Emporia State Federal Credit Union

The members of ESFCU made donations via their Skip-a-Payment program at the end of 2021. They raised $1,815, which was split between Abundant Harvest and Corky’s Cupboard. For over a decade, this Skip-a-Payment program has been offered to the members of ESFCU, which helps them to have extra spending cash during the holidays, and helps those in the community get food when they are in need.

Maine Highlands Federal Credit Union

Northern Light C.A. Dean Hospital has been organizing a “Preserve the Promise” campaign to help modernize hospital facilities. As they pursue $6.2 million to hit their goal, they were awarded $7,500 from Maine Highlands FCU as it seeks to support the local community.

First Harvest Credit Union

First Harvest CU has a long history of working with Cape Regional Health System and recently presented a donation of $1,000 to support the Cape Regional Foundation’s Surgical Services Capital Campaign. This gets the hospital closer to hitting their $10 million goal, of which more than 75% has been raised so far.

Oak Tree Business Systems, Inc.

From helping those in need of a meal to providing long-term support for medical centers, we are very proud of these credit unions and the dedication they give to their respective communities. We are always on the lookout for such charitable deeds.
