All Staff Madras Jefferson County Meals on Wheels-Jefferson County Senior Center-Oct 19

Madras Branch Team Making Baskets for Jefferson County Meals on Wheels/Jefferson County Senior Center

Traditionally, Columbus Day falls within the list of “banking holidays” observed by financial institutions. For our 125-plus employees at Mid Oregon Credit Union, however, it was a rare opportunity to serve our communities in more ways than funding loans and processing deposits: A day of community service.
While our seven branches were closed on Monday, October 14, the Mid Oregon team still reported to work—trading business attire for t-shirts and work boots as we deployed throughout the region to serve our community.
Our Madras branch team spent the afternoon supporting Jefferson County Meals on Wheels & Jefferson County Senior Center. They made gift bags for all Meals on Wheels recipients, complete with warming items, toiletries, small gifts and activities (puzzle books, games).
A total of 10 branch and department teams chose a local organization to work with on a service project or supply-gathering effort, and the credit union supplied each team with a budget to purchase needed supplies or equipment to complete the project.
Other Projects: Family Access Network (FAN), The Sisters School District, Jefferson County Meals on Wheels, Jefferson County Senior Center, the La Pine Senior Activity Center, Saving Grace, Bend Park and Recreation District, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend, MountainStar Family Relief Nursery and Grandma’s House.
