  • Salinas, CA (1888PressRelease) May 24, 2014 - Many children look forward to arriving on the first day of school with new notebooks, backpacks and pencil boxes, but it's a different story for children whose families cannot afford these items. To meet this community need, allU.S. Credit Union is partnering with Giving Is Fun, Too* (G.I.F.T.) to collect school supplies for Monterey County area students.

    "We recognize a need in our area and feel that it is our place to help do something about it," says Patrick Redo, CEO of allU.S. Credit Union. "We are always amazed by the generosity of our local people and businesses. Items as simple as pencils, pens, rulers, spiral notebooks, erasers, glue, crayons, and backpacks, can provide these children with the means to learn. In fact, it is amazing how much good a person can do if they purchase a single packet of pencils or a folder and donate it to this program."

    From June 1st - July 18th, 2014 allU.S. Credit Union encourages its members, family, friends and all Monterey County Residents to donate school supplies and drop them off at the branch at 20 W. Market St. in Salinas. Desired Items include:
    Pencils
    Pens
    Rulers
    Spiral Notebooks,
    Erasers
    Glue/Glue Sticks
    Crayons
    Gender-neutral backpacks
    Pencil Boxes
    Binders
    Calculators
    And Much More

    Supplies will be distributed on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at the Calvary Church of Monterey from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. to foster children who have signed up for the program.

    *G.I.F.T. is a nonprofit, tax-deductible organization run entirely by volunteers. The Caregivers Association and Hartnell College Volunteers run the Back To School Backpack Program.

    Background on allU.S. Credit Union:
    Americans have grown increasingly tired of feeling small inside big banks. They appreciate the security and convenience of a large financial institution, but crave the personalized customer service of a community-oriented credit union.

    Now they can experience both. allU.S. Credit Union offers the personalized service seen at traditional, not-for-profit credit unions while providing access to important financial products, technology innovations and more than 30,000 surcharge free ATMs nationwide.

    For more than 63 years, allU.S. Credit Union has been investing in the future of Monterey County. They are a credit union that is all about personal service, helping families navigate their financial needs. According to Patrick Redo, CEO of allU.S. Credit Union, "At allU.S. Credit Union you are a member not a customer. We believe that when it comes to the way we serve and interact with our members, everything matters."

    The differences between allU.S. and large banks are clear. allU.S. attracts members, or stakeholders, while banks recruit customers. allU.S. is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution with benefits passed down to its members, while banks are corporatized, profit-first institutions with a declared goal of making money for company stockholders.

    In short, allU.S. Credit Union is positively different.
    allU.S. provides its members with a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates. Members enjoy lower rates on credit cards, home equity loans, mortgages, auto loans, and personal loans. At the same time they experience higher rates for savings, checking, money market accounts and CDs.
    When you do business with allU.S., you're an owner. When allU.S. makes a profit, it directly benefits the membership. Its goal is to create wealth for its members and the community in which they live - right here in Monterey County.
    Like banks, allU.S. Credit Union insures its holdings, offering the peace of mind that its members deserve. At the same time, all loan decisions are made in the local branch, and the small staff knows its members and addresses their individual needs and concerns.
    This growing membership enjoys perks such as personalized service and free checking, while feeling secure that their money is safe and working for their future. Once they join it becomes obvious: allU.S. is indeed positively different.
    It's allU.S. in action positively unique, positively caring, positively essential for the financial well being of its members.

    allU.S., formerly Monterey County Employees Credit Union, was formed in 1950 to provide services to the employees of Monterey County and their families. Since then it has expanded its field of membership to include a select number of employer groups. It has now changed its name and currently serves thousands of members from the Salinas Valley to the Monterey Peninsula.
