Humanitarian Highlight 11/21: Let's Espresso Ourselves
Happy Fall, everyone, and welcome back to another #HumanitarianHighlight! We have some credit unions that we mentioned down below who have stood out to us this week. Let us know what you think, and please tag us using #HumanitarianHighlight if you know of a credit union who went above and beyond for their community.
Caring about their community, Staley CU volunteered at HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital to help clean and sanitize toys, then serve lunch to all the patient’s families. This is a clear example of going above and beyond for those who need the little extra support.
No matter the job, CU of CO is always there to help! Their incredible team reached out to The Hospitality House at North Colorado Medical Center to provide their assistance in cleaning guest rooms, supply toiletries, and snacks for the Hospitality House Guests. On top of that, CU of CO Foundation awarded a $1, 500 grant to The Hospitality House.
Keeping their promise, the amazing Delta County CU Cash Mob was out and about one-afternoon giving money to customers to pay for their lunches.
Our happiness is when a credit union surpasses their goal and exceeds to make everyone around them happy. One Nevada CU had a Shred Day event and donated that profit to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. They received $1,332 in donations and were able to match the total to $2,665!!
Warming our hearts, Lake Trust CU worked with Operation Warm to deliver brand new winter coats to every single student from three different schools in Michigan. How incredibly amazing is this?!?
Partnering up with Step Sisters, they were able to package and deliver 400 chemo care kits to breast cancer patients in local hospitals. You thought Northwest FCU was done, WRONG! Northwest FCU also had the pleasure of donating a $5,000 check to the Step Sisters annual 5k Ribbon Run! Way to go, everyone!!
“Our organization has been fighting breast cancer since 2005 when a small group of neighbors joined together to raise funds for research. We named ourselves The Step Sisters to represent the support family members provide to one another during times of crisis.
In 2014, members Ashley Campolattaro and Angela Fuentes took The Step Sisters in a new direction. After repeatedly seeing the impact the disease had on patients and their families, they decided to dedicate their mission of assisting patients throughout treatment.
Supporting patients as they battle the disease is a different, yet vital approach to fighting breast cancer.
Throughout our history, we have seen neighbors, friends, and family members diagnosed with the disease. We believe that no patient should have to stop or even delay her treatment due to her personal circumstances. Further, no patient should feel that she is fighting breast cancer alone.” Step Sisters
