Service One Credit Union is participating with Giving Tuesday by presenting $1,000 in funds to the Center for Courageous Kids, a Scottsville, Kentucky-based non-profit center which supports children with life-threatening illnesses. These donation dollars were raised in part from Service One’s Annual Community Shred Day held on October 22, 2016 and supplemented by the credit union to reach a total contribution of $1,000.
The Service One 3rd Annual Community Shred Day was held at the 1609 Campbell Lane Branch. Minimum donations of $5 were requested to benefit The Center for Courageous Kids. Service One members and the community securely shredded over 3 tons of paper, along with raising $716 for the Center for Courageous Kids.
“Service One is dedicated to helping our members realize their financial dreams. It was a pleasure individually meeting those who came out to Service One’s Shred Day,” said Garth Griese, Service One President/CEO. “Having shred day events like this is one of the many ways Service One supports our membership and our community’s financial wellness.”
