Make the Season Bright – Great Toy Drive

Benefiting local kids

This is an exciting holiday season here at USAgencies — we are back once again partnering with KGW for the Great Toy Drive. For more than 35 years, KGW has been collecting toys for families in Oregon and SW Washington with the help of over 130 local nonprofit organizations and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.

USAgencies is proud to be one of the drop-off locations. We invite our members, friends and family to stop by and donate a toy to local families in need.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Buy a new, unwrapped toy.
  2. Drop your toy at USAgencies (95 SW Taylor Street, Portland, OR) by Dec. 13th.
  3. USAgencies will match each donation we collect, toy for toy (up to $500)!

Don’t live nearby? No problem! Give us a call to donate cash towards a toy. We’ll pick one up on your behalf (and match it!).

Thank you for helping to make the holiday season special for local families.

Great Toy Drive Brings Smiles for the Holidays

Over the past several weeks, USAgencies Credit Union has been collecting toys for the KGW Great Toy Drive, a fundraiser that benefits local children in need. As we’ve done in years past, USACU once again matched all donations made – toy for toy. Staff and members gave generously, and each week we watched the piles of toys grow larger and larger!

On December 14th, staff gathered in the lobby to collect the toys, and drop them at the KGW Studios. Because of to the generosity we saw this holiday season, the credit union was able to deliver over 200 toys this year! There was a major increase in donations from the previous year, making it a success for all involved.

USAgencies Credit Union would like to thank those who took the time to purchase and drop off toys. Your donations helped bring more smiles to more local children in need. We couldn’t have done it without all of you!

Giving Thanks

We (our members, staff, volunteers, and business partners), made a tremendous impact this holiday season.

TOY DRIVE SUCCESS
USAgencies had the privilege of participating in the KGW Great Toy Drive again this year. We reached out to our members, the buildings we serve, and our business partners to get everyone involved and then the credit union matched each donation, toy for toy. It was a huge success with over 360 toys donated, benefiting 130 non-profits that KGW works with.

All the toys were delivered to the KGW Studios by our friends Portland Pedal Power via bicycle.

It was such a fun experience for all of our team and for Portland Pedal Power.

Take a look at the gallery of photos from the delivery day back in December. 

Many thanks for all who helped make this effort a success.

SKIP-A-PAYMENT FEES FOR LOCAL KIDS
For the months of November and December, we gathered Skip-a-Payment Fees from members who were taking a break from their USAgencies loan for the holidays. Each $20 fee was set aside for Credit Unions for Kids, benefiting Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Many members even donated above and beyond the fee amount, giving us a grand total donation of $1,510. Amazing!
