WestStar Credit Union Gives Back To Our Communities!
One of the best reasons to belong to a credit union is the fact that we are not-for-profit. We are always looking for ways to give back to our membership and our communities with any profits that are earned.
Here are some ways we give back:
Banzai Online Financial Literacy
WestStar sponsors several local Nevada middle and high school classrooms to participate in the Banzai Online Financial Literacy program. This program has meaningful content using real-life scenarios that engages teenagers and doesn't cost Nevada teachers a dime! Teachers can visit weststar.teachbanzai.com/teachers to learn more about the Banzai program, and request sponsorship from the credit union!
Las Vegas 51’s Baseball Team Sponsorship
As proud Las Vegas locals, we are happy to support our local sports team! As part of this sponsorship, our members are able to get discounted tickets to the games! We encourage all locals to bring your family out to a game, or meet up with friends for a fun-filled night out!
Annual Canned Food Drive
Every year in November, our employees collect canned food to support Help of Southern Nevada's Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Our branches even keep a bin out in the branches in case any members would like to contribute as well!
The season of giving rings true with WCU employees! With year-long fundraising efforts, we typically “adopt” 2-3 families in need during the holidays via Help of Southern Nevada's Adopt-A-Family program. The staff and executive team look forward to the chance to go shopping for toys and clothes for new children every year! We even have a gift wrapping party each year to make sure these gifts are ready to be delivered by Santa to these families in need.
As we are able, we love to host these events where members can stop by one of our branch locations and drop off their personal documents for secure shredding. There’s something therapeutic about cleaning out those old files and folders of old statements, receipts, tax documents, etc. and watching them all gulped down by the huge shred truck. Check your statements or look for an email from us to announce when our next Shred-A-Palooza will be!
Local Event Sponsorships
We are always keeping our eye out for local’s favorite events to support – we love to sponsor festivals, charity walks, neighborhood events, and more! After all, we are your neighbors. If you see us out at an event, stop by and say HI – we’ll even pose for a selfie with you!
