Rapid City, S.D. (12/01/14) – Black Hills Federal Credit Union employees proved that a group of people working toward a common cause can make a huge difference; they pledged a whopping $12,741 to the United Way of the Black Hills.

Funds will remain in the Black Hills region and benefit the United Way’s aim to bring area people and communities together to advance the common good and address our communities’ most pressing needs.

Black Hills Federal Credit Union Prepares Thousands of Students
for a Successful School Year

 

Rapid City, S.D. (08/26/14) – A new school year wouldn't be complete without new—and necessary—school supplies. For an 18th year, Black Hills Federal Credit Union has helped ensure that thousands of students in more than 60 schools throughout western and central South Dakota start their school year on a successful foot with the supplies they need. Through generous donations from community partners, corporate sponsors, credit union staff and members, BHFCU collected more than 77,000 supplies for their School Supply Drive.

"Our real job is to give these kids the break they deserve so they, too, have an equal opportunity to learn," said Carol Brown, vice president marketing & business development at BHFCU. "As we distributed supplies to area schools this year, we heard many educators tell stories of the widespread need for school supplies and how much it means to a child who receives brand new supplies when they had no expectation of having anything of their own."

From pens to pencils, binders and backpacks, every donation makes a difference. Not only does the Drive give students the supplies they need to succeed in the classroom, it also lessens the financial burden of back-to-school expenses faced by many families in the area.

"The prices of most supply items were higher than we have seen in years past, which we knew was going to make it that much harder for families on tight budgets," said Kylene Casanova, business development officer at BHFCU. "The generosity of so many made it possible for students in 14 communities to start school with everything they need to have a great year."

Black Hills Federal Credit Union is a community-focused, member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative serving more than 59,000 members from Member Service Centers in Rapid City, Custer, Eagle Butte, Hot Springs, Pierre, Spearfish and Wall, South Dakota.

Funds benefit children receiving care at Rapid City Regional Hospital through the purchase of medical equipment, services and programs.

"When I had a premature baby in 2009, Rapid City Regional Hospital was the only nearby facility equipped to treat my vulnerable infant. The experience made me passionate about the hospital's Children's Miracle Network." said Traie Brott, BHFCU Insurance Services insurance agent and Children's Miracle Network fundraising co-chair.

The Children's Miracle Network fundraiser was carried out under the umbrella of BHFCU's Community Action Team (CAT), which is comprised of groups of employees who volunteer their time and energy to co-chair various fundraising endeavors.
