Metro East Chapter of Credit Unions Charity Committee

Purpose Statement

Keeping with the Credit Union philosophy of "People Helping People," Metro East Chapter of Credit Unions Charity Committee will provide the necessary support to make a positive charitable impact within our combined communities.

The Metro East Chapter of Credit Unions has sought to focus and unify our charitable efforts. Recognizing this need a committee was formed January 23, 2007. The charity committee consists of nine members representing eight credit unions.

In unifying our charitable efforts we reach out to all credit unions in the Metro East Chapter to support this worthy cause. We are committed to outreaches of all kinds and have been very successful in supporting many worthy causes since the onset of the committee in 2007.
