2020 recap: committed to the community
COVID-19 forced us to think creatively about how to support our communities during a pandemic. Our staff was eager to help and reached out with ideas, suggestions and we were able to encourage safe commitment to our community in the following ways:
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.
Our scholarship program is available to help provide financial assistance to graduating high school seniors for their higher education. Now accepting applications for 2021 graduating seniors.
We Thanked Our Fellow Essential Workers
Our frontline staff let essential workers everywhere know, #WeSeeYou! As a thank you for their dedication we wanted to help feed healthcare workers and support our local restaurants. For every essential worker tagged in the comments, or share of our Facebook post, you helped us donate $500 for "Meals for Healthcare Heroes" and spread the word about the amazing things the fundraiser is doing for our community.
We want to give a shoutout to the Interact Club at Rock Bridge HS, alongside Columbia Rotary South for all the work they've put into helping healthcare workers and local eateries in the Columbia area.
Feeding The Community
Because of the economic impact of Covid-19, more people than ever are turning to food banks to feed their families. When we weren’t able to volunteer in person because of stay-at-home orders or being short-staffed, we helped our community partners by making other contributions.
Committed to the Community Giveaway
Part of the credit union's Mission is to help our communities thrive. So in order to support our community partners during these trying times, we purchased gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses for massive weekly giveaways! We are proud to have been able to support our local, small business neighbors at Your Pie, Sague la Grande, Speckled Frog, Plume, Mad Cow, Lizzi & Rocco's, and Tiger Bounce.
Employee Holiday Drive
Each of our branches selected a local organization to kind of adopt and support over holiday season. The staff then brought in items from those charities’ wishlists. We were able to help spread joy to Keep Pushing, inc, Cosmopolitan Diabetes Foundation, Coyote Hill, The Women’s Safehouse, and H.E.R.O.E.S. Care with an additional $5,000 donation from the credit union.
The employees of Tigers Community Credit Union raise money for local charities and credit union advocacy by donating $1 to wear jeans on Fridays. Since the launch in 2016, credit union employees raised nearly $19,000 in donations with our Denim for Dollars program!
Some of the organizations that received donations included the St Louis Food Bank, Credit Union Advocacy PAC, the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition, and the Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri.
Tigersquirrel® Was All in for Columbia Public School's #CPSspiritweek!
||Virtual Vacation Day||Fancy Day||Jersey Day|
The Rock Bridge, Hickman, and Battle student councils came together to promote a district wide spirit week to support our local community. The CPS Virtual Spirit Week helped raise funds for Meals for Healthcare Heroes during the COVID-19 crisis.
