Non-profits across the area received thousands of dollars and support from St. Helens Community in 2016. And that support will continue into 2017 and beyond.

In total, St. Helens Community was able to give over $30,000 to local non-profits, including Amani Center, Columbia Pacific Food Bank, Community Action Team, Sacagawea Health Center, Columbia Humane Society, Rainier Giving Tree and Community Meals.

The donations were not limited to cash as hours were also donated. That included 179 volunteer hours. The credit union also sponsored 18 youth sports teams, and directly helped 738 local kids on the path toward financial literacy through the Financial Beginnings and Financial Reality Fair programs.

Working on Our Day Off
Every year on Columbus Day, the employees at St. Helens Community volunteer their time for a good cause. In 2016, our employees made nearly 300 personal toiletry bags to be handed out by Community Action Team to those in need throughout Columbia, Clatsop, and Tillamook counties. St. Helens Community plans to work with Community Action Team again in the future to bring hope to those who need it.
