News and Notes: Here’s What’s Happening in Northwest Credit Unions
July 5, 2017
Washington State Employees Credit Union and MHRV Show Association announced a $23,544 joint donation to Washington State Parks. MHRV Show Association produces the Seattle and Puyallup RV shows, and for the past five years, WSECU has been the shows’ presenting sponsor.
The credit union and the Show Association each donated $1 from every regularly priced ticket sold at the box office for the shows, resulting in a $23,544 joint contribution. Both organizations share a commitment to giving back to the community, and the partnership allowed them to double their contribution beyond what either organization could give on its own.
The donations are earmarked to support “First Day Hikes,” which encourage family hikes on New Year’s Day, and the Capitol Camp Out event, which introduces the fun of camping and outdoor recreation to children who might not otherwise experience it.
“Washington State Parks are as iconic as the Space Needle,” said Ann Flannigan, WSECU’s Vice President of Public Relations. “It’s great to be able to collaborate with MHRV on such a significant donation to these public treasures.”
