February 2019 Candy Bars Sales = over $1200.00 to local food pantries!
Each year, we join with the Northeast Credit Union Chapter in their candy bar sale fundraiser. All proceeds of this sale benefit the food pantries found within the Chapter District. During the month of February, we double this amount! For each candy bar sold, we match the purchase, dollar for dollar, and donate directly to a food pantry near each local office. The more candy bars sold, the more money gets donated! To make it more fun, for each candy bar purchase, a red paper heart goes up on display in each office. By the end of February, the walls were covered in red hearts! This year, the candy bars sales totaled $1248.00 – that’s an additional $1248.00 we sent to our local food pantries! THANK YOU!!! The credit union motto is “People helping People” and with your generous support (and sweet tooth) that’s exactly what we did!
What is a Credit Union?
A credit union is a cooperative financial institution, owned and controlled by the people who use its services. These people are YOU (the members). Credit Unions serve groups that share something in common, such as where they work, live, or go to church. Credit Unions are not-for-profit, and exist to provide a safe, convenient place for members to save money and to get loans at reasonable rates.
