TCU Leadership Community Project
On a hot August day, Travis Credit Union's leadership team worked on a few volunteer projects at the SPCA of Solano County. The team painted the exterior of two donated buildings, pulled out carpet, then primed and painted the interior walls of what will become a low-cost spay and neuter clinic. Despite 100+ degree temperatures, the team got the job done. Team members also personally donated more than $700 to the shelter. Travis Credit Union is proud to support our local SPCA.
Cultural Diversity Day
Travis Credit Union employees help celebrate Cultural Diversity Day at Travis Air Force Base on Aug. 29. We're proud of our military heritage and support the cultural diversity in all of the communities we serve.
Financial education is an important part of helping people reach their financial goals. TCU employees held a free budgeting workshop for community members on Aug. 25 at our Woodland Branch.
Stuff The Bus Campaign
TCU employees and members participated in the annual Stuff the Bus effort to gather school supplies for foster and homeless children in Solano County. Donation barrels were set up in the 12 TCU branches in the county, allowing donors to drop-off supplies such as backpacks, notebooks and folders for this regional campaign.
American Cancer Society
TCU employees love to support the American Cancer Society. In mid-June, employees entered raffles to win a lap-sized homemade quilt, Oakland A's tickets and other prizes–with all the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. Employees raised another $800 during an in-house fundraising event in which they were allowed to decorate their offices in purple and wear purple attire for a day!
The credit union also sponsored a team in the Vacaville Relay for Life event held this summer to support the American Cancer Society.
Mad City Money–
Teen Financial Boot Camp
More than 250 teens completed our popular "Mad City Money–Teen Financial Boot Camp" workshops over this past summer. These free and interactive sessions gave high school students a sense of the financial responsibilities they'll face as adults. Each participant was assigned a temporary identity and visited various "merchants" in the fictional Mad City to select housing and transportation, buy goods and pay bills.
