Gesa Credit Union Announces Local Heroes Card Program

New program will support first responders, veterans, and teachers.

8/23/2019

Gesa Credit Union is proud to announce the Gesa Local Heroes Affinity Debit Card Program, supporting first responders, veterans, and teachers. The new program earns money for law enforcement, firefighters, veterans, and teachers each time a cardholder swipes their card. 

“First responders, veterans, and educators are the backbone of our community. They help our neighbors in times of need, they are our heroes in times of crisis, and they are mentors helping to shape our children’s future,” said Don Miller, President and CEO of Gesa Credit Union. “We are proud to help our members honor these local heroes through Gesa’s program.”

With every swipe of a Local Heroes Debit Card, Gesa will make a small donation to the Local Heroes Fund at Gesa. The money raised from these cards will be used to fund grants for fire departments, police departments, teachers groups, and veterans’ organizations, or those who support them, throughout the state of Washington. Organizations interested in applying for a grant are encouraged to apply online at www.gesa.com/local-heroes during the grant funding window. A call for grants will be announced annually by Gesa, at a later date.
