When it comes to community partnerships, Unitus likes to think we have an unobstructed vision. As a community credit union, it's not only part of our philosophy, but our responsibility to give back to the communities we serve.
A large part of that vision includes working with organizations that positively shape education and health and human services, primarily but not exclusively with children. The organizations we partner with include:
- Doernbecher Children's Hospital
- Clackamas Service Center
- Good Neighbor Center
- Helping Hands
- Adopt A Class
- Schoolhouse Supplies
We aren't above forming a line in a warehouse and packing hundreds of backpacks full of school supplies for children going to school in high need neighborhoods. In fact, we do it every year with the Tools for Schools program through Schoolhouse Supplies.
As for families who have fallen on hard times, each holiday season we partner with organizations like Snowcap and Helping Hands to collect barrel after barrel of canned foods, warm clothes and blankets to feed and clothe those who might otherwise go without as well as lots of new toys for the children.
It's important our members know that one of Unitus' core values is to give back to the communities we serve, both socially and economically.
But don't just take our word for it — see what our community partnerships have to say about working with Unitus!
