Helping the Community
Membership supports your friends and neighbors
As a Members Advantage Community Credit Union member, you’ll be helping support local community organizations. Every year we support great community events, local youth sports teams, and fundraising initiatives that positively impact our members and the community we live in.
November 2018 – MACCU teamed up with our members to donate $3,500 to the Vermont Foodbank! MACCU wants to thank our members for opening a CD at a special rate and including a donation to the VT Foodbank. Because of this donation, over 5800 meals can be provided to Vermonters.
January 2018 – Common Roots Sponsorship
At MACCU we are passionate about the schools in the communities we serve and supporting the programs that benefit the students! This is why we’ve chosen to be a sponsor of Common Roots, an organization committed to providing meals to kids and their families in need, and a high standard for the food that is served to students in school. Common Roots connects farmers, educators, youth, and community to build a sustainable, healthier future through place-based programs.
Family Night at Thunder Road 2018
Our family night at Thunder Road turned out to be a great success once again! A big thanks to all of our members and friends who came out to enjoy the race with us. With everyone’s support, we were able to raise $1,200 for the Vermont Foodbank!
