Redwood CU celebrated International Credit Union Day on Oct. 17. Each time a member used his or her Visa debit or credit card, the credit union donated 25 cents to Credit Unions for Kids—a fundraising arm of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. CO-OP Financial Services matched the donation, bringing Redwood CU's combined total contribution to $32,039. Redwood CU also hosted a blood drive in Santa Rosa, where more than 17 employees and community members participated. Additionally, Redwood CU completed its 2013 United Way workplace giving campaign, garnering more than $96,000. Redwood CU also offered a variety of financial assistance options to federal employees who were impacted during the government shutdown in early October. Also, Redwood CU has formed a strategic partnership with Community Action Partnership (CAP) to help fuel the economy in Sonoma County by offering up to $1 million in loans to microbusinesses and start-ups.
Redwood CU staff and community members donated blood to Blood Centers of the Pacific to save lives.
