InRoads Credit Union Awards More Than $100,000 to Local Columbia County High Schools

ST.HELENS, Ore. — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — InRoads Credit Union is proud to announce the continued success of its Team Up for Schools program, which awarded $103,550 to Columbia County high schools this 2023/2024 school year. The program utilizes special debit cards created for supporters of St. Helens, Scappoose, and Rainier High Schools. Each time one of the school’s cards is used, 5 cents is donated to that school.

“The Team Up for Schools program embodies our mission to promote community wellness through learning and education,” said Nathan Cox, President/CEO, InRoads Credit Union. “Beyond donating, we also work with these schools to help educate students on healthy money management, which includes good practices that can extend toward other areas of their lives.”

Launched in 2017, the Team Up for Schools Program is now in its seventh year. Since its launch, the program has generated a total of $535,351 for schools in the Columbia County area. The money raised through the program helps support various school activities, like field trips, educational programs and other needs.

Members with a checking account who live, work, attend school, volunteer or worship in Columbia, Clatsop, Cowlitz, Multnomah and Washington Counties can sign up for the program at no additional cost to help support one of the three schools.
