1st United Services Credit Union has Donated Over $7,000 to our 3 Winning East Bay Schools
Pleasanton, CA – September 29, 2011 – 1st USCU is committed to improving the quality of life for our members and the communities we serve across the East Bay and Tri-Valley areas. 1st USCU Smart & Healthy Communities initiatives provide support to a wide variety of worthwhile educational and healthcare programs in our local communities. Through our “Back to Schools” Challenge, over $7,000 was donated to three local schools – Golden Oak Montessori in Hayward, Washington High School in Fremont and Manzanita SEED Elementary in Oakland.
1st USCU Members and non-members were able to nominate a school or school program and tell us why their school or program was deserving of a donation. The schools received scores based on the number of nominations and the creativity of those nominations. Plus, the total number of new checking and loan accounts opened during the time period determined how much money was going to be donated.
1st United Services Credit Union is proud to announce our 3 Back to Schools Winners.
