Columbia Credit Union Donates $17,100 to Local Veterans Groups

On Dec. 10, Columbia Credit Union presented donations to three veterans groups — Community Military Appreciation Committee (CMAC), Home with Heroes, and Returning Veterans Project — with funds generated from the credit union’s Veterans Appreciation Loan Promotion. A total of $17,100 was raised through the campaign, which was split evenly between the three organizations.

During the loan promotio, which ran from Oct. 1 through Veterans Day, Nov. 11, Columbia donated $100 for every qualifying loan taken out on a new or used car, truck, boat, motorcycle, RV, snowmobile, or ATV. This is the sixth year that Columbia Credit Union has run their Veterans Appreciation Loan Promotion, raising a total of $119,200 for local veterans groups during that time.

“During times like these, our community mission of making life better for our members and neighbors is more important than ever,” said the credit union’s President and CEO, Steve Kenny. “The veterans in our community have selflessly served our country. Columbia Credit Union is honored to support them and their families through these vital local organizations.”
