InRoads Credit Union presented three Columbia County high schools with a combined total of $73,074.05 for the coming school year.

With their Team Up for Schools program, the credit union contributes 5¢ for every debit card transaction their members make when they use one of three, high-school themed cards. The program raised $21K more for local schools this year over last for an increase of over 40%.

Videos posted to social media featured InRoads Credit Union President/CEO Brooke Van Vleet virtually presenting checks and thanking members for their participation in the program. St. Helens High School was given $38,041.35, Rainier High School received $8,165.55, and Scappoose High School was awarded a total of $26,867.15.

“It’s an honor to team up for schools with our members,” stated  Van Vleet. “Over the last three years, we’ve been able to donate a total of $146,027.95 to these three schools with the community’s support. We’re all looking forward to raising the bar each year with our Team Up for Schools program.”

Members who want their own Team Up for Schools debit card can pick one up at any area InRoads branch location or request one online at inroadscu.org/teamup.
