Supporting Central Oregon Through Holiday Dough

Holiday Dough Helps Provide

The holiday season can be very difficult for many local families. The weather changes, and just having enough food can be a major concern. Mid Oregon Credit Union, along with other local businesses and organizations, has provided a way for our members- and the community- to help: Holiday Dough.

Our Holiday Dough fundraiser helps to provide holiday meals and food assistance to local families in need. Each of our branches has chosen an organization in their communities which helps fill this need.

Building on a successful 2018

We are encouraging the communities we serve to join us for the annual Holiday Dough Fundraiser in every Mid Oregon branch. These local charities provide food, clothing and shelter for individuals and families in the greatest need during the holidays.

Giving back to the community is a core value of Mid Oregon Credit Union, aligning with our credit union philosophy of “people helping people”. . In 2018, we almost DOUBLED the amount we raised the previous year—a total of more than $3,500. Who knows what this year will bring? With the continuing generosity of our members, we are hoping that support will be even greater in 2019.

Donations Stay in their Community

You can stop by any of our seven Central Oregon branches to donate to Holiday Dough through Friday, December 6, 2019. All contributions will stay in the community where they are collected and 100% of the donations will benefit these local agencies:
