Mountain America Contributes to St. Luke’s Health Foundation

Boise State University men’s basketball team gets excited about three-pointers during its games and so does Mountain America Credit Union.

For the 2017-18 season, Mountain America Credit Union committed to donate $50 for every three-pointer completed by the Broncos. During the season, the Broncos three-point shots numbered close to 300. Once the numbers were in, Mountain American presented a $15,000 donation to this year’s recipient, St. Luke’s Health Foundation, in support of St. Luke’s mission: To improve the health of people in the communities we serve.

Tim Toy, Mountain America Vice President of branches in Idaho, presented the check during the final season game on March 3.

“St. Luke’s services make an impact on countless people here in Treasure Valley. Mountain America is proud to continue supporting their mission,” Toy said.

Rivermark Community Credit Union has opened its newest branch in Beaverton, at the Cedar Hills Crossing shopping complex. This new full-service branch features expanded hours, similar to many of Rivermark’s other locations. The Cedar Hill branch offers regular lobby hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as video teller service from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The credit union’s video tellers are live, real-time tellers seen through a two-way video screen that offer the same level of service as traditional tellers.

“As our members’ banking habits have changed, we have adapted our service to accommodate,” said Seth Schaefer, Chief Experience Officer for Rivermark.

To celebrate the opening of the new branch, Rivermark is giving away a two-night stay at Out ‘n’ About Adventures in Cave Junction, Oregon. All Rivermark branches are offering scratch tickets for a chance to win. Additionally, for every account or loan opened through May 31, 2018, members will receive an automatic entry for the giveaway.

STCU Expands to the Tri-Cities Area

STCU announced its first expansion outside the Spokane-North Idaho market. Over the next two years, STCU will open branch locations in Pasco, Kennewick and Richland, Washington. Currently, more than 2,300 STCU members call the Tri-Cities home.

The first new branch location will be built in Kennewick, which will offer a variety of services, including home loans, a drive-through and 24-hour ATMS. The Kennewick branch will open later this year and will be joined by another branch in 2018. The third branch will open in 2019.

“As newcomers, we look forward to getting to know Pasco, Richland, and Kennewick, and learning how we can best serve the communities,” said Ezra Eckhardt, President and CEO of STCU.
