Oregon State Credit Union has donated 10 of their gently-used computers to the Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis, Oregon, for use in the club’s computer lab.

Helen Higgins, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club, said the donation will benefit the broader community by contributing to a more skilled workforce.

“The computers donated by Oregon State Credit Union will enhance our STEM programs for youth, including our coding and design classes to build a skilled, local workforce.”

The computers have been refurbished, and are ready for immediate use. These will replace a set of computers the credit union donated to the club several years ago.

Oregon State Credit Union President and CEO, Richard Hein, explained that this donation is in-line with the credit union philosophy of ‘People helping people.’

“Contributing to the communities we serve is part of who we are,” Hein said. “Anything we can do to improve education and literacy in our communities is good for the community and good for the kids at the club.”

In 2018, the credit union’s philanthropic efforts exceeded $217,000.
