Scott Credit Union Partners with Memorial Foundation for Heart Month

Edwardsville, Illinois – Scott Credit Union recently presented a $1,500 check to representatives from Memorial Foundation in Belleville to be the official partner of activities during Memorial’s celebration of National Heart Month. Scott Credit Union East Belleville Branch Manager Deanne Shanklin and Market Manager Bobby Meszaros presented the $1,500 check to Memorial Foundation’s Executive Director Anne Thomure.

Scott Credit Union representatives were on hand at Memorial Hospital on Valentine’s Day to hand out heart-healthy snacks to employees and patients.

“This is another opportunity for us to support our community and the people who live here,” SCU Shanklin said. “It is our way of showing our support to the hospital and the great programs that they provide.”

Scott Credit Union has sponsored the hospital’s Heart Health Month program for the past several years.

“Credit unions are committed to helping people and supporting the hospital allows us to do that,” Shanklin added. “It is a good feeling to support the programs that are provided to improve the heart health of people in our area. We are proud to play a small role in this effort.”

Scott Credit Union has made giving back to its communities a major priority. The local credit union contributed more than $370,000 and its employees volunteered more than 2,000 hours to a variety of local civic efforts throughout the region in 2018.

The credit union has contributed about $3 million and its employees have volunteered over 21,000 hours to a variety of local civic efforts and financial education throughout the region in past 10 years.

“We realize that without our members and the communities in which we serve, we would not exist as a financial alternative,” Shanklin noted. “Supporting our communities is very important to us.”

The credit union has increased its community involvement in the past few years while also increasing its efforts to educate consumers of the value of doing their financial business with a not-for-profit credit union.

“We want people in the area to know more about the value of doing business with a credit union,” she added. “That is why we have focused our time on educating area residents about Scott Credit Union. One of the big ways we’ve done that is through our community involvement.”

Scott Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative that is member owned. The credit union recently gave over $570,000 million back to members through a bonus dividend and loan interest rebate. Scott Credit Union has given over $11 million back to members in the past 11 years.

Scott Credit Union is open to anyone who lives or works in a 26-county area, including Madison, St. Clair, Monroe, Morgan, Sangamon, Calhoun, Greene, Jersey, Macoupin, Montgomery, Christian, Shelby, Bond, Fayette, Effingham, Jasper, Crawford, Clinton, Marion, Washington, Jefferson, Randolph, Perry, Franklin, Jackson, or Williamson counties in Illinois. Anyone who lives or works in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, or St. Charles County in Missouri also can open accounts at SCU.
