10,000 Little Boxes & Other Ways Your Membership Helps Our Community

Unitus community impact report cover 2018

These past few months have offered many delightful opportunities to help improve our shared community.

From donating $98,855 to volunteering 580 hours, we hope you take pride in reading a few ways #TeamUnitus partnered with local schools and nonprofits to make a difference.

Your membership, after all, is what makes this possible.

For the first time in our history…

We’re excited to share our inaugural Community Impact Report!

It showcases how Unitus partnered with our employees, members, and communities to help make the Northwest a better place to live and work during 2018.

Credit Unions do so much good working together

During last year’s annual CU4Kids auction at the NWCUA MAXX Convention, we and fellow credit unions together presented OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital with a check for $170,000, along with a donation of state-of-the-art electric kids’ cars to transport our smallest patients from their rooms to medical appointments.

10,000 little boxes

Unitus employees joined the East Vancouver community in assembling 10,000 food boxes for non-profit Generosity Feeds at Illahee Elementary School!

After filling the boxes (in only 75 minutes!), we were thrilled to present our donation of $600 to help children in Clark County who struggle with hunger outside school hours.

Holding court with the princesses

The 2019 Portland Rose Festival Court has officially been selected!

We look forward to spending time throughout the next few months with these 15 remarkable young ladies from high schools all over Portland Metro.

Be sure to follow our mentorship journey on Unitus’ social media as we complete a community service activity at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, host a financial workshop, and arrange a job shadow opportunity for each princess in her career field of choice.
