ST. HELENS, Ore., January 6, 2022: In 2021, InRoads gave back $145,692 to the community, including $98,418 to local schools, $37,296 to non-profit organizations, $5,000 to college bound students and 1,829 random acts of kindness.
“We were proud to have impacted so many in the community,” remarked Brooke Van Vleet, InRoads President/CEO. “We are looking forward to even more giving opportunities in the new year and ways to invest in our members and the community.”
As part of their Team up for Schools program, InRoads members helped the credit union raise $98,418 to benefit local schools. To generate the much-needed funding, the credit union contributed 5¢ for every debit card transaction their members made when using one of three high-school themed debit cards.
In addition to the $37,296 donated to local community organizations, the credit union performed 1,829 random acts of kindness throughout the year. These included shopping for gifts for local giving trees, hosting a blood drive, surprising grade school students with a book to take home, giving $100 to random InRoads LIVE visitors during the week of Christmas, and more.
