BISMARCK, N.D. (4/23/14)--CU Social Good, a campaign by the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD), marked a milestone of collecting more than 2,000 stories of the good work that credit unions do in their communities.
"We are encouraged by the positive response we have received from so many unique credit unions," said Robbie Thompson, CUAD president. "Credit unions give back to their local communities in an amazing variety of creative and generous ways, but we don't always do a great job of telling these stories."
In just over a year, credit unions from 41 states and Canada have shared their stories on the CU Social Good website, noting everything food pantry donations in Michigan to building bikes for kids in Texas. Categories include charities, community work, Credit Unions for Kids, financial literacy and education, scholarships and environmental sustainability.
In addition to sharing their stories and photos, credit unions can receive good news in their email in-boxes by subscribing to CU Social Good's weekly newsletter.
