WESTconsin Helps Give Back to Local Schools
Posted: November 26, 2019
WESTERN WI— WESTconsin Credit Union gives back to their communities and from June to September WESTconsin Credit Union’s mortgage department did just that to many local schools. WESTconsin Credit Union worked together with a mortgage insurance company that they use to give back to local schools. For each mortgage insurance certificate that was activated with ARCH MI during this time, ARCH MI gave $100. At the end of this time frame ARCH MI donated $3,900 on behalf of WESTconsin Credit Union.
ARCH MI hosted a Classroom Donation program and invited WESTconsin Credit Union to participate. The ARCH MI Classroom Donation program was set up to donate to a program called DonorsChoose. This is on online platform where teachers around the country can submit projects to be funded by donations from anyone. These projects can be anything a teacher may need or want to improve their classrooms and their students educational experience. DonorsChoose has helped over 550,000 teachers receive funding for projects which benefitted over 37 million students!
The projects that were donated to by ARCH MI on behalf of WESTconsin Credit Union were randomly selected from a list of projects that came from schools within the credit union’s membership area. Some of the projects that were fully funded by these donations allowed students to have flexible seating and study areas within their classroom, a “Calm Corner” for sensory needs, helped to organize non-fiction books for easy understanding and check out, and helped students engage and interact with statistics in the real world. Together, ARCH MI and WESTconsin Credit Union made a difference in many students’ lives!WESTconsin Credit Union has been serving members since 1939, and membership is open to anyone who lives or works in the Wisconsin counties of Barron, Buffalo, Burnett, Chippewa, Clark, Dunn, Eau Claire, Jackson, Pepin, Pierce, Polk, Rusk, St. Croix, Sawyer, Taylor, Trempealeau, and Washburn, or the Minnesota counties of Anoka, Chisago, Dakota, Goodhue, Isanti, Pine, Ramsey, Wabasha, and Washington, with a $5 minimum deposit in a Membership Savings Account.
