Carolina Trust Federal Credit Union donates to Coastal Samaritan Counseling Center

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (June 15, 2022) — In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness month, Carolina Trust made a $2,500 donation to the Coastal Samaritan Counseling Center.

 Employees were encouraged to donate to this vital cause, and in turn, the credit union matched all employee donations.

 The credit union also raised awareness by supplying employees with green ribbons to wear each day and sharing helpful mental health resources.

 “At Carolina Trust, we are committed to living out the credit union philosophy, ‘people helping people.’ One of the best ways to help others is prioritizing mental health in our workplace and community,” said Tim Carlisle, President/CEO. “Depression is not something you should be ashamed of. It is a real illness. One in four people has a mental illness. If you’re one of them, here’s a reminder. You are not weak.

Fighting a war inside your head 24/7 takes real strength and bravery. Never forget how strong you are.”
