We’re into Giving Back
At Extra Credit Union, we feel passionately about connecting with our surrounding community and positively contributing to local children’s lives. Via photos and descriptions, learn about the ways that we actively provide caring, one-on-one attention to children in need and witness first-hand their positive shifts in becoming more confident, focused, and driven to excel. We also offer opportunities for you to contribute, too!
Individual Extra Credit Union staff members mentor up to four high school students in need for the duration of the school year. Our entire staff supports Winning Future’s vision financially though our employee Jeans for a Cause fund. We are also proud to co-sponsor Winning Futures events recognizing students and their families.
MISD’s Homeless Education Project
Each holiday season Extra Credit Union employees and our members offer donations to the MISD’s Homeless Education Project. Cold weather supplies, toiletries, gift cards and cash donations are collected and benefit local children whose families are currently homeless.
Blessing in a Backpack
Extra Credit Union supports the Blessings in a Backpack program in both Warren Consolidated and Center Line School districts through Jeans for a Cause donations, event sponsorships, service activities and more. Blessings in a Backpack provides food over the weekend for those children whose families struggle to put meals on the table and might not otherwise get balanced nutrition when not in school.
Active Sponsorships and Support
Extremely dedicated and active in supporting partner schools, Extra Credit Union sponsors and supports many different school programs, such as football games, pep rallies, senior all-night parties, yearbook ads, and all sorts of fundraisers.
If you are a partner school with a sponsorship need, contact our School and Community Relations Coordinator Ashley Fordyce at (586) 276-3150.
Jeans for a Cause
At Extra Credit Union, we constantly seek ways to show our commitment to our partner schools. Through Jeans For A Cause, each Friday employees can wear denim and donate $3 toward this fund, which supports important school programs named above.
Want to join in the efforts? Make a donation of any size toward our Jeans for a Cause fund. You may drop it off at any Extra Credit Union location. To learn more, call Amy Persyn at (586) 276-3151.
