TAGGED AS: 1st United News

1st United Credit Union celebrates our community by investing time and money where our members live, work, and play.  Taking this social responsibility to heart, we have launched an Adopt-a-School program, supporting several Alameda County elementary schools.

For several years, 1st United has supported schools with fundraising programs and by providing financial education to more than 12,000 high school students in Alameda County. Seeing a further need at many of the schools, we have since bundled our Adopt-a-School program to include volunteerism, sponsorship, and financial education.

We see the Adopt-a-School program as an opportunity to make a real difference in the community. Not only does it open the door for us to help out in the classrooms, providing a much-needed set of extra hands at school events, we are able to partner with the schools to bring financial education to students, teachers, and families.

Chabot Elementary in Oakland, Fruitvale Elementary in Oakland, and Donlon Elementary in Pleasanton have all been adopted by 1st United. We are so grateful to the schools for welcoming us into their families and hope that our involvement – large or small – contributes to their success.
