The RETURN THE FAVOR campaign, sponsored by SCCCU, officially ended on December 7, 2020, and brought in over $10,000 to local non-profit organizations.
“We want to thank our community for stepping up and helping our local non-profit organizations who need help right now,” stated Beth Carr, President/CEO of SCCCU. “It’s been a breath of fresh air to see how willing people are to give to others.”
Of particular note, SCCCU would like to thank the following local businesses for their generous contributions during the campaign:
- UR 1 Stop Auto Sales
- Cardinale Oldsmobile GMC
- BTW Industries, Inc.
“We appreciate these businesses and their commitment to our community, “ stated Carr. “At a time when so many are trying to keep their doors open, their donations have a lot of meaning to us. I also want to mention that El Pajaro, CDC, a non-profit organization in our community, donated money to another non-profit organization. No words can describe how incredible that is.”
In addition to the $38,500 that SCCCU donated to our local non-profit organizations through the RETURN THE FAVOR campaign, Credit Union members and community members contributed a total of $10,844. Adding that to the Credit Union’s annual donations and grant support of $124,774, the Credit Union helped infuse slightly over $174,000 into our community in 2020.
“The outpouring of support for so many in need has been incredibly heart-warming,” stated Carr. “The word ‘community’ in our name is there for a reason. We love this community and its people. We live and work here and care so much about each other. We appreciate the continued support we receive each day too.”
“It’s important to note that this is not a one-time thing,” says Carr.”We’ll be back at this in 2021.
