A Great Antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday!!

[/section] WSECU will match up to $2,500 in contributions to the nonprofit as part of #GivingTuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, in support of providing affordable housing in Thurston County.  #GivingTuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better, and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that the world truly gives as good as it gets.

Giving Tuesday celebrates how the Thurston County community can do more with their wallets than just shop – and that we can give as good as we get. You can give more, give better, give smarter when you join WSECU and show your support of Homes First!

The Homes First! partnership is being led by WSECU’s West Olympia Branch. It’s the result of an internal credit union competition for community engagement projects, led by staff. West Olympia branch employees selected Homes First! and presented their idea to the entire company. Their proposal to participate in #GivingTuesday was selected as a finalist.

“We’re excited to leverage our $2,500 and turn it into $5,000 for a great organization with the community’s support,” said Ann Flannigan, WSECU’s Vice President of Public Relations. “We are going to help donors double their dollars on December 3 with our match. It’s the perfect antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.”

Those who are interested in joining WSECU’s #GivingTuesday initiative for Homes First! can visit CommitChange.

Contributions can also be provided directly to the organization or be made at any local WSECU branch.
