The results are in – Special auto loan promotion raises over $14,000 for families and children

BETTENDORF, IA (February 21, 2019) — Funds have been tallied up and the Marine Corps Quad Cities Toys for Tots program and The Holiday Network recently received their donation checks as part of Ascentra Credit Union’s $50/$50 auto loan promotion.  The credit union and its members teamed up to help families and children in the region during the holidays, raising a grand total of $14,700.

With their commitment of giving back to the community, Ascentra introduced a holiday offer that gives back to a local nonprofit organization and to their members in the areas they serve.  For every new auto loan brought to the credit union throughout November and December, the credit union gave $50 to the borrower while also giving $50 to the Marine Corps Quad Cities Toys for Tots program or $50 to The Holiday Network—a nonprofit organization that assists families in Clinton during the holidays with food baskets and toys.

The promotion was structured to help kids and families right away for the 2018 season.  Due to the promotion run time, there was even money to save for the 2019 season.

“We are overjoyed with the results of this campaign and the overall impact it has made,” said Ascentra Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Naeve.  “We are always looking for ways to give back to our members and our community in unique and meaningful ways, and this was a great opportunity to spread holiday cheer so no family or children are left without.”

A portion of the funds has been given to The Holiday Network totaling $3,650, and the Marine Corps Quad Cities Toys for Tots program received $11,050.
