Humanitarian Highlight 05.05.22
It's Thursday, and we have put together another #HumanitarianHighlight which shows credit unions making a difference in the lives of elders, students, and those who need a helping hand.
The Front Royal Federal credit union donated $4,000 to the Warren County Senior Center. After closing its doors due to Covid-19, the senior center reopened in March of this year and has recently started to accept new clients. The center will use the donated money to acquire a new A/C unit and to fund activities to encourage socializing within the community. The Front Royal Federal Credit Union is helping and making a difference in the lives of elders in the community.
Libraries are more than just places where people grab books. They have become a vital resource to any community. That is why Royal Credit Union has donated $200,000 to the Mondovi Public Library to help build a new library next to its existing building. The donation will also help provide additional seating, study areas, places for meetings, and computers.
Leaders Credit Union's mission has always been to power people's passions and makes lives better. Through their non-profit, Leaders Education Foundation, they awarded $25,000 in scholarships to local high school seniors. In addition, the foundation presented $7,000 to local Tennessee libraries as part of their Imagine the Possibilities campaign.
GreenState Credit Union is no stranger to helping out communities in the state of Iowa. In collaboration with Coralville Community Food Pantry, they matched each monetary donation made at the Drive-Up + Donate event on April 22nd. This event was hosted by Iowa basketball star, Caitlin Clark. With great success, they were able to surpass their fundraising goal of $22,000.
Affinity Credit Union's mission is to help build better lives for people in their community. This year marks their third time teaming up with a local hockey team, the Iowa Wild, for the “Tame the Hunger” program. The event took place at Confluence Brewing Company, where staff from each organization packed meals for the cause. They were able to produce 30,000 prepackaged meals that will help those in need in the Des Moines area.
In their 90th year of helping out communities in the East Bay area, 1st United Credit Union will be Alameda County Community Food Bank's official Food Drive host this year. Throughout 2022, they will have food collection barrels in their 9 branches throughout Alameda County to drop off non-perishable donations. With the help of these convenient collection barrels, it will encourage people to aid in making a difference within the community.
