Charities Benefit From CU Checking
The Marion and Polk Schools CU has developed a new checking account that will benefit the area's non-profit charities.
The "Community Interest" account will allow the credit union member to choose to send interest earned on the account to one of a number of area groups.
The groups include Habitat for Humanity, the Boys and Girls Club, YWCA, and the YMCA.
The credit union will convert interest/dividends at the end of each quarter into a cash donation to the groups.
The CU used a similar promotion on its Visa cards to donate more than $130,000 to area schools over the past two years.
