Thanks to the Team Up for School campaign and our members’ local school spirit, InRoads Credit Union has presented three Columbia County high schools with a combined total of $51,530.30. It’s a wonderful way to end the school year.

The Team Up for Schools program had another successful year, pledging 5¢ for every debit card transaction made using one of three high-school themed cards. For the 2018 – 2019 school year, St. Helens High School was given $26,785.45, Rainier High School received $5,581.70, and Scappoose High School was awarded a total of $19,163.15. Brooke Van Vleet, InRoads Credit Union President/CEO and other credit union executives presented checks at the end of the school year.

“Year after year, this has been a huge success for the whole community,” stated InRoads Credit Union President/CEO, Brooke Van Vleet. “Our members love the Team Up for Schools program, and so do the schools.”
