book Drive Results
We recently partnered with local children’s book author and founder of Krissy’s Kids Book Club, Kristin Mosley, to host a children's book drive during the month of October for Ready Readers, a local organization dedicated to inspiring a love of reading among little learners in low-income communities.
Following the month long drive, we held a drive thru donation event at our Brentwood location. And thanks to members like you, we were able to donate over 1,000 books!
The credit union contributed an additional $1,000 to help support these amazing programs.

Highlights from 2020's commitment
COVID-19 forced us to think creatively about how to support our communities during a pandemic. With the uncertainty and social distancing restrictions of the pandemic, we were not able to achieve our lofty goals to beat our 2019 volunteering numbers. BUT our team adapted and rallied in some truly fantastic ways.
“We are just so proud of our staff for rolling with the hand we were dealt this year and adapting with the uncertain to still make some of our goals happen,” said Lori Hudson, Community Outreach Specialist. “There was so much more we wanted to do for our community during these trying times, and it feels good to have the staff step up to do what they can to help our communities thrive.”
