How awesome are these Alabama CU interns who took the time to volunteer at the West Alabama Food Bank and got the chance to learn more about their CU’s very own, Secret Meals for Hungry Children program! Alabama CU created this program to provide children in the community with meals every Friday leaving them healthy, happy, and full all weekend long. Amazing job, everyone!

Supporting both small businesses and frontline heroes during this tough time, the Central Credit Union of Maryland sponsored an appreciation lunch and coffee break from some of their local eateries for all the day and night shift nurses of the VAMHCS! What a wonderful gesture, and a great way to help both small businesses and our frontline workers!
The Space Age Federal Credit Union went TO INFINITY AND BEYOND, raising $12,989 for the Food Bank of the Rockies! This organization has provided food for thousands throughout Colorado and Wyoming since 1978! Thank you Space Age FCU for your outstanding work, and most importantly thank you to the Food Bank of the Rockies for helping families thrive when they need it most.
The Mission Federal Credit Union teamed up with the American Heart Association and helped raise $45,000 for their Go Red for Women campaign! Many San Diegans came together to support this incredible cause that aims to end heart disease and strokes in women. Congratulations Mission FCU on an astounding amount raised, and to all those who supported the Go Red for Women Movement.

The Lamont branch of Self-Help FCU took the initiative to join in and be part of a community effort to help donate over 3,000 meals to those who have been affected by COVID-19.

Numerica employee, Ashley, and her daughters decided to bake and deliver over 50 cinnamon rolls from scratch each with a little note to spread a little kindness to the front steps of those in their community. What a sweet act of kindness ladies, and thank you for reminding us that one small, thoughtful gesture can make someone’s day!
