Credit Union of Southern California donates $225,000 to local charities

In pursuit of its “People Helping People” philosophy, Credit Union of Southern California (CU SoCal) donated a combined $225,000 to local charities based in surrounding communities the credit union serves. The charitable efforts took place over a one-month span.

By the time the last check was signed, the credit union donated to 19 charitable organizations in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $25,000. Donations were sent to a variety of charities, including the Boys and Girls Club of Fullerton, Bridge of Faith, Helpline Youth Counseling, INC., and Interfaith Food Center — all of which are based in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino.

“These charitable organizations do great work for the communities we serve, and it’s our honor and pleasure to help them continue to do so,” said CU SoCal President and CEO Dave Gunderson. “We take our ‘People Helping People’ philosophy seriously, and we hope these donations reflect our commitment to that ongoing pursuit.”
