SCE Federal Credit Union (SCE FCU) is currently celebrating its 65th year in business.
A large part of what has contributed to the Credit Union’s longevity and success, along with a steadfast focus on member service and convenience, is our commitment to the communities in which we serve. Here are a just a couple examples of our involvement: We are a sponsor of Kare Youth League of Irwindale. They will be opening a multi-purpose sports complex in August, benefiting the local community through its uniquely designed program. We are also a Gold Plus Sponsor of the American Diabetes’ Association’s Tour De Cure coming to the Santa Fe Dam on June 10th. This is their primary cycling fundraising event geared toward a vision of a life free of diabetes and all its burdens. SCE FCU will have 29 participants and more than two dozen volunteers for this event, raising nearly $6,000 to date. SCE FCU encourages and rewards employees for volunteering their personal time for local charitable causes and community service. In 2016, employees served a total of 636 hours for charitable organizations, including the Credit Union’s own nonprofit, the Center for Financial Empowerment, the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, the AVON Walk To End Breast Cancer, KARE Youth League, Baldwin Park Santa Clothes, the San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless, Young Life, community cleanup days, and youth education/leadership/mentoring programs. Among other recognition, top volunteers are rewarded with donations to the charity of their choice.
