Effort is part of a ‘Community Partnership’ program

Lacamas Community Credit Union donated 35 festive holiday dinner baskets to its members as part of its Community Partnership program.

For the fifth consecutive year, the credit union’s program allows members to nominate fellow members — or themselves — to receive a holiday basket with groceries and a gift card for a holiday dinner. Lacamas President/CEO Kathleen Romane created the dinner basket program in response to the recession in 2008.

“This program continues to grow with this year being our most successful drive for nominations,” she said. “This is just one of the many ways Lacamas gives back to the local community. These economic times have created a greater need. I hope those of us that are able will reach out to those in need this holiday season.”

The credit union raises funds for its Community Partnerships — local organizations that benefit from Lacamas’ philanthropy — through yearly fundraising efforts such as sales of See’s Candies and Entertainment books.

Lacamas Community Credit Union serves its members through six branch locations in Clark and Skamania counties, as well as online banking. The credit union serves anyone who lives or works in Southwest Washington.
