Since 2008, White Crown Credit Union and their members have partnered with Food Bank of the Rockies, making a big difference for our hungry neighbors. The credit union spirit is about “People Helping People” – a concept White Crown truly exemplifies. Yesterday, they contributed funds to provide 14,600 meals, bringing their lifetime total to nearly 210,000 meals for our community!
They’ve found creative ways to raise the funds. They decorate their lobby with posters, sharing the progress of their campaigns. They run promotions throughout the year, allowing members to skip a loan payment for a small fee; a portion of that fee is donated to FBR. They also match member donations and during member appreciation week, donating funds for each loan application received.
They’ve set an even loftier goal next year to contribute 40,000 meals and already have plans in place and posters on display.
“We realize hunger affects too many people in our community and we want to do our part to help feed them, “ says Kerry Spradling, President and CEO of White Crown Credit Union. “We’ve partnered with Food Bank of the Rockies for the past seven years and are delighted to know our efforts, a little at a time, have added up to make such a big impact on our community. We look forward to continuing our efforts with the food bank in 2015.”
White Crown team and members, we love your enthusiasm, your creativity and your dedication to helping us feed hope. Thank you for being our partner. We appreciate you!
