People Helping People
Elevating the Communities We LIve, Work and Play In
People helping people; it’s the philosophy born in the mid-1800’s when the first financial cooperatives (credit unions) were formed. It’s also very alive today and can be seen daily as our staff takes time to educate (not just sell), support local events, volunteer with a variety of causes and organizations, and collect items for those in need. We’ve even created a teacher grant program, which is fully funded by our staff. If you see us out in the community come say hey, join us in doing good, and/or donate to the current cause! Below, you’ll find info on how you can help with our current community impact efforts. Please consider what you can do to help us build a better community!

Do you know of a local cause that needs help? Tell us about it and the positive impact it will have on the community! We may be able to help. Naturally, we have limited resources (both financial and human) and aren’t able to support every deserving cause that comes our way; however, we’re happy to consider the cause, want to learn more about the needs of our community, and, at the least, may be able to help build some awareness for the cause.
