Understanding the hardships that are going around during this COVID-19 pandemic, SeaComm FCU took the time to donate $500 to the United Methodist Church Meal Program as an effort to help provide FREE meals to many members in the area. On top of all of that, this remarkable CU provided 2,000 meals to the community, just last month!
Always caring for the members in their community, PenFed teamed up with Harker Heights and Copperas Cove financial centers to help put together 300 goodie bags for all the frontline nurses at the Central Texas VA Health Care System. The frontline heroes are truly the best and deserve every ounce of recognition. We also wanted to include a big shout out to the people who donated and helped out with everything going on; Macy Butler, Janet Davis, Francheska Pastor, Gregory Ransaw, and Jolene O’Hanlon.
To help celebrate #NationalNursesWeek, First Financial FCU took the time to surprise all the frontline medical professionals with hot meals from Mission BBQ and donated $5,000 to their Care Bravely Fund!
Thank you to Kitsap CU for taking the time to create a #CUmovement within your community!

They were able to provide meatloaf, potatoes, salad, and cookies to their beloved community by partnering up with CJ’s Evergreen General Store and the Manette Saloon.
Absolutely outstanding! Workers CU donated more than $31,000 to many organizations in their area to help with anyone struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic!
