At the core of the credit union movement lays the ‘people helping people’ philosophy. At Collins Community Credit Union, we are devoted to financial success for all and work hard to demonstrate the ‘people helping people’ spirit each and every day.
In March we set out to save our community a total of $1 million in loan interest and fees by consolidating debts and refinancing high interest rate loans. If we met our goal, we would donate a total of $10,000 to four local charities, Children’s Miracle Network, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the HACAP Food Reservoir and the Alzheimer’s Association. About halfway through the campaign we had blown our $1 million goal out of the water and set our sights on reaching $2 million – doubling our goal, and doubling our commitment to our four charities.
We are happy to announce that we ended up saving the community a total of $2,123,596 during the campaign. Not only are our members saving money, but we are also reinvesting into our communities through local charity.
We'd like to say thank you to our staff, our charity representatives and the community for all your hard work during our Community Challenge. Because of you, we were able to save the community over $2 million and when you save, we give.
