Humanitarian Highlight 7/11: Pushing Forward
Well, it's Thursday, and you know what that means.. #HumanitarianHightlight post!! We love the credit union industry and all the #CUdifference acts many credit unions participate in. Wanting a change is one thing, but creating the change is a whole different story. If you know of any credit union that went above and beyond for their community, use #HumanitarianHighlight to be featured on our page!
Huge round of applause to TruStone Financial FCU’s employees for participating in their bigBowl fundraiser for the fourth year in a row. They were able to raise an astounding amount of $9,000 to be donated to the Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest. This incredible non-profit offers financial literacy help, college and career readiness and of course entrepreneurship education for students K-12.
Get ready for this!! Since 1982, Jolt Credit Union has awarded over $2 million in scholarships! Recently, Jolt CU has awarded a $400 check to another member. Way to go #CUfamily!
Through their Casual for a Cause program, Ascentra CU presented a $563 check to one of their members who has been battling many medical issues.
