UNITED EDUCATORS CREDIT UNION DONATES OVER 250 WARM WINTER GARMETS TO LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Apple Valley, MINN. – In keeping with the credit union tradition of service and giving back, United Educators Credit Union donated over 250 mittens, gloves, scarves and hats to local elementary schools. UECU, a member-owned financial cooperative serving the education community, partnered with members to collect donations during its Second Annual Holiday Mitten and Hat Drive through the month of December. The donations were given to the selected schools in January to distribute to those children in need.

Benefiting schools include:

  • GreenLeaf Elementary School, Apple Valley
  • Morris Bye Elementary School, Coon Rapids
  • Normandale Hills Elementary School, Bloomington
  • Washington Elementary School, Owatonna
  • Woodbury Elementary School, Woodbury

"The generous giving of our members and UECU employees was so great to see during these financially challenged times," said Del Danielson, credit union president and CEO. "We're so thrilled to support our community schools and provide them essential winter garments to keep children warm this winter."
