Clackamas Federal Expanding with New Branch, Bigger Facilities for Staff, and Community Services
Red Canoe scholarships help future college students fund their educations.
Clackamas Federal Credit Union will soon relocate its administrative offices, two miles north of its existing McLoughlin Branch in Milwaukie, Oregon.
Housed in a former Safeway, the move will allow the credit union to consolidate staff that are currently working in three different facilities across the county and accommodate the growing Clackamas County financial cooperative.
The credit union’s new commercial space will also include a new branch with drive-up Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs), as well as a community center that will serve as a space for financial education workshops, credit union events, and can be used by community and business partners.
“Clackamas Federal Credit Union is pleased to breathe new life into this shopping center and expand our footprint in order to help us better serve the community we love,” President and CEO Aaron Goff said. “This space will allow us to grow for years to come, enhancing our ability to improve people’s lives.”
Red Canoe Awards $31,000 in Scholarships
In a continuing effort to support the local community, Red Canoe Credit Union has awarded $31,000 in scholarships to high school students and adults pursuing higher education. The scholarship program was created in memory of Wally C. Ohlfs, who, while working at Weyerhaeuser Company, founded the credit unions and served as its manager and president from its inception in 1937 until 1975. He was a tireless advocate for the Credit Union Movement.
The Wally Ohlfs Scholarship Program is open to graduating high school seniors who have maintained a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or higher and will enroll full time in an accredited college or university. There were 18 high school student recipients throughout the states of Washington and Oregon who were awarded scholarships this year. Additionally, Red Canoe awarded continuing education and non-traditional scholarships to four recipients.
