Community Involvement

Giving Back to Our Communities

Central Willamette is committed to enrich our community through our volunteer efforts. We actively participate and support civic organizations and events and are pleased to report that our employees contributed nearly 1,000 hours of volunteer service last year! Each employee is encouraged to find their passion and follow it. Credit Union employees give their own time to support the community that they live and work in.

A few of the annual credit union and on-going projects are:

Giving Trees:

Credit Union staff recognizes that within our communities there are many families who would not be able to enjoy the Christmas holidays without help. Each year staff partners with the local Boys & Girls Clubs and provides gifts for the children and food for the family. A non-perishable food drive is held in conjunction with the Giving Tree project.

Fundraising Walks:

Central Willamette employees participate in the annual Relay for Life and the Soroptimist Breast Cancer Walk for the Cause.

Chamber of Commerce:

Employees participate with local area Chambers of Commerce in our communities serving in many capacities, including Governmental Affairs Committee, Greeters, Ambassadors, Marketing Committee, Youth Leadership and the Board of Directors.

Kidzshop:

Central Willamette employees participate each year in Altrusa Club's Kidzshop. Employees donate their time to help children in need shop for new school clothes.

Credit Unions for Kids:

Funds are raised by selling Sees candy to staff, members and friends of the Credit Union. The proceeds of this fundraiser benefit Doernbecher Children's Hospital and PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Other Involvement:

As well as special events, Credit Union employees are involved in service organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs, SafeHaven Humane Society, Albany Rotary and Greater Albany Rotary Clubs, Soroptimist, Habitat for Humanity, Samaritan Albany General Hospital Auxiliary, Greater Albany Public Schools, Linn Benton Community College, and Altrusa. Central Willamette's employees volunteer their time to serve on Board of Directors, various task forces and key committees.

The Difference

Central Willamette is proud to make a difference in the lives and well-being of our members and members of our communities by participating in all of these projects and programs. For Central Willamette Employees the following quote is one we all live by:

"Never Doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world . . . Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has!"
