In celebration of its 75th branch opening, Suncoast Credit Union has donated $75,000 to local nonprofits and charitable organizations across its service area.
Each of Suncoast’s 75 branches selected a local charity within the community it serves to receive $1,000. Supporting local communities is a “cornerstone of the credit union’s mission and values and allows local autonomy in funding the highest and greatest needs,” according to a news release.
“Giving back to the community is at the heart of Suncoast Credit Union, and we are excited that we were able to celebrate having 75 branches with donations that will help make an impact locally, in the communities our members call home,” said Kevin Johnson, president and CEO, in the release.
“The pandemic has created greater needs across a wide spectrum and our hope is that we can help, especially during the end-of-year holiday season,” said Johnson.
The distribution of the donations took place throughout December.
These seven charitable centers in Pasco County each received $1,000:
- Pasco Kids First, Trinity
- Suncoast Kids Place, Land O’ Lakes
- Make a Difference, Dade City
- Sunrise of Pasco County Inc., Zephyrhills
- FMC Foundation of Caring, Wiregrass
- NAMI of Pasco County, Port Richey
- Camp Idlewild, Holiday
