Redwood CU Community Relations and Marketing Specialist Matt McPherson was honored with the Employee Campaign Chair of the Year award from United Way of the Wine Country in recognition of the credit union’s 2011 workplace fundraising campaign. The combined contributions from Redwood CU, its employees, and officials totaled more than $86,000, exceeding the company’s goal and its 2010 campaign. Also, the credit union continued their sponsorship of the Sidewalk Procession at this year's Sonoma County Fair. An estimated 400 kids and kids-at-heart from throughout Sonoma County joined the Sidewalk Procession—led by Redwood CU mascot "Reddy the Redwood" and a Dixieland band—from the downtown farmers’ market to the fairgrounds on Wednesday, July 25. Additionally, RCU Services Group—the wholly-owned subsidiary and CUSO of Redwood CU—has named Lisa Wittke Schaffner as a board member for a one-year term.
