National Pi Day

REDONDO BEACH, CA (April 20, 2018) — You might think that a credit union’s business is simply to deal with members’ money — helping members save, buy homes or cars or pay for college.

But on March 14, South Bay Credit Union, headquartered in Redondo Beach, Calif., once again proved that its mission is not just about money, it’s about being part of the community it serves.

March 14 marked one month since the horrific shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Students at Redondo Union High School and elsewhere in the South Bay region served by SBCU joined their peers across the nation in the #ENOUGH National School Walkout.

SBCU, a leader in programs designed to help educate students about managing money, also recognizes the need for community support for students and staff dealing with the emotional issue of gun violence in schools. After all, one of the Seven Cooperative Principles for Credit Unions is “concern for community.” In honor of that, on a day more commonly known for the lighthearted celebration of Pi Day (pi being the mathematical constant representing the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, whose first three digits are 3.14) SBCU staff members delivered a dozen pies to high school staff.

“I’m proud of our staff who wanted to reach out on this day even more than usual to let the community in our school know that we care about them and support them,” said Jennifer Oliver, CEO/President of South Bay Credit Union.

Originally organized as a credit union for area educators, SBCU recognizes that Redondo Beach Unified School District staff, from administrators to maintenance workers, continue to support students in their quest for safe spaces in which to learn. Any way you slice the pie, that’s a goal SBCU is proud to be part of.
