Scott Credit Union sponsors Monroe County Fair

EDWARDSVILLE, IL (July 7, 2014) — Scott Credit Union recently presented a check for $1,500 to representatives from the Monroe County Fair Association to sponsor the Pro-Mod Class at the demolition derby at this year’s fair.

Scott Credit Union Community Relations Representative Cassidy Beck presented the check to County Fair Board Director Ron Niebruegge and Board Secretary George Obernagel.

“This is another opportunity for us to support our community and the people who live here,” Beck said. “Having a location in Waterloo, we feel that it is important that we do what we can to help in the community. We are very happy to be able to help local people and support this year’s fair.”

Scott Credit Union will be the presenting sponsor of the new Pro-Mod Class at this year’s demolition derby that will be held beginning at 7:30pm on Friday, July 25.

The Monroe County Fair will be held from Sunday, July 20 through Sunday, July 27 at the Monroe County Fairgrounds in Waterloo.

Scott Credit Union has made giving back to its communities a major priority. The local credit union contributed over $325,000 and its employees volunteered over 2,400 hours to a variety of local civic efforts throughout the region in 2013.

“We realize that without our members and the communities in which we serve, we would not exist as a financial alternative,” Beck noted. “Supporting our communities is very important to us.”

The credit union has increased its community involvement in the past few years while also increasing its efforts to educate consumers of the value of doing their financial business with a not-for-profit credit union.

“We want people in the area to know more about the value of doing business with a credit union,” she added. “That is why we have focused our time on educating area residents about Scott Credit Union. One of the big ways we’ve done that is through our community involvement.”

Scott Credit Union is open to anyone who lives or works in a 17 county area, including Madison, St. Clair, Monroe, Randolph, Perry, Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Clinton, Marion, Bond, Macoupin, Montgomery, Fayette, Effingham, Williamson, and Jackson counties. Anyone who lives or works in St. Louis County, Missouri also can open accounts at SCU. Additionally, anyone active or retired military also can have accounts with Scott Credit Union.

Scott Credit Union currently has 15 area locations: Scott Air Force Base, East Belleville, Fairview Heights, Collinsville, O’Fallon, Edwardsville, Waterloo, Highland, Caseyville, West Belleville, Millstadt, Mascoutah, Troy, Wood River and its Home Office in Edwardsville.
