Kitsap Credit Union (KCU) continues "Doing Life Together" – both literally and figuratively.
KCU's Chief Financial Officer Brad Miller, along with Colin Morrison presented the check to United Way of Kitsap County Board President Jamie Haywood & Executive Director Carl Borg at our March 21, 2019 board meeting.
Employees of KCU voluntarily donated over $12,000 to the community organization out of their own wallets and paychecks – either in one-time donations or through payroll deductions. KCU leadership donated the remaining amount to bump it to an even $15,000 making the total donation a gasp-inducing $30,000.
Before presenting the check, Miller shared, “We are a member-owned cooperative. We have 15 branches – 11 of them are located in Kitsap County. We have over 100,000 members – a majority live in Kitsap County. For us to succeed, we need our members to succeed. For our members to succeed, we need our community to succeed. And for many in our community to succeed, we need the United Way of Kitsap County. Thank you for all that you do.”
This is the 2nd year as our Platinum Sponsor, this donation will help fund multiple community events and projects throughout 2019 including the United Way Day of Caring, the Letter Carriers Food Drive, VolunteerKitsap and more.
