Unity One Credit Union committed to giving away $1600 last year to organizations through their UGive campaign. This campaign allows employees, and members, to nominate deserving organizations throughout their communities.
The public is then asked to vote for the organization of their choice during the two week voting period.The highlighted organizations for the fourth quarter were: The Armourdale Renewal Association (KS), Neighbors, Inc. (MN) and the Red Cross.
Neighbors, Inc. took home the first place prize of $250. They will use the money to further help local residents in the St. Paul, Minnesota area. The Armourdale Renewal Association placed second and the Red Cross placed third, receiving $100 and $50 respectively.
Keep an eye out for the next round of UGive in 2017.
