Frontier Community Credit Union President Bill Hauber presents a check for $1,787.66 to Salvation Army Captain Rick Hamlin.
LEAVENWORTH, Kan. – On Tuesday, August 5, Frontier Community Credit Union President Bill Hauber presented a check to Salvation Army Captain Rick Hamlin for exactly $1,787.66. This may seem like an odd amount to donate, but it was all part of the credit union’s Christmas In July coin drive.
Last month, Frontier Community Credit Union’s three offices each displayed a Salvation Army donation kettle, encouraging members, the community and staff to donate their spare change.
People were also able to help raise money by purchasing paper kettles for a suggested donation of at least $1 that displayed their name. These efforts raised $1,287.66, and the credit union matched $500 of the money donated during the month-long coin drive.
“This was the first time Frontier Community Credit Union held a summer donation drive for the Salvation Army, so I challenged staff to raise $500, with the promise that the credit union would match it.” said Hauber. “They, along with our members and the community, really came through. I appreciate everyone getting behind this good cause.”
The Salvation Army coin drive was part of the Frontier Community Credit Union’s monthly Final Fridays. Throughout 2014, the credit union has been holding themed events on the last Friday of each month to thank its members and the community for 60 years of business.
