Northwest Credit Unions Make the Holidays Merry and Bright

Across the region, credit unions help families in need by donating food, warm clothes, toys, and more.

Credit unions don’t need a reason to give back – it’s simply in their DNA to do so. They do it year-round, providing services, donations, and time to the communities they serve. When children needs coats in the winter, they collect them. When families need food and supplies, they stock the pantry shelves.

During the holidays, the credit union People Helping People philosophy kicks into even higher gear, and Northwest credit unions are no exception. In Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, credit unions are giving back in unique ways that are making a difference in the lives of community members.

Today in Anthem, we’re showcasing a few of those amazing efforts. We realize we’re only scratching the surface. Your Northwest Credit Union Association thanks each and every credit union for its dedication to helping others and the communities they serve.
