InRoads Program Has Raised Over $334,000 for Local Schools
ST. HELENS, Ore., June 2, 2022: The InRoads Credit Union Team Up for Schools program has raised more than $334,000 for local high schools, with the help of its members.
Now in its fifth year, the InRoads Team Up for Schools program encourages members to use a special, co-branded debit card featuring one of three high school mascots for St. Helens, Scappoose and Rainier high schools. When members use their card for a purchase, InRoads contributes 5¢ to the member’s favorite school. The more members utilize the cards, the more money that goes to the schools. Members have helped raise $99,842.70 for the 2021/22 school year.
“This program has been a favorite of our employees and members alike,” stated Brooke Van Vleet, InRoads President/CEO. “It’s such an easy way for our members to give back to the community. It’s a true honor to be part of such an amazing program.”
This year, St. Helens High School has received $51,424.15, Scappoose High School received $36,929.85 and Rainier High School has gotten a total of $11,488.70.
“InRoads Credit Union has clearly had an incredible impact on our students and community,” said Scappoose High School Principal, Jerimy Kelley. “We look forward to continuing the partnership between the High School and InRoads Credit Union.”
At Scappoose High School, plans for utilizing the funds include the purchase and implementation of a horticulture curriculum, and added support for school activities. In addition, Rainier High School has used Team Up funds for an electronic marque for the campus entrance, an electronic score table for the gym, and to help fund graduation celebrations.
