Become a SMART Reader

As you know, USAgencies has partnered with Enterprise Car Sales to help bring awareness to the SMART (Start Making a Reader Today) program with our Smart Savings Car Sale & funds drive. For all those who’ve purchased a vehicle, or donated funds, THANK YOU so much. For those of you who haven’t yet, there’s still time! Our Smart Savings Car Sale & funds drive runs through October 31st.

But perhaps you’re not in the market for a new vehicle, or funds are tight… We wanted to shed light on another way to help SMART (Start Making a Reader Today)– by volunteering! If you can’t give monetarily, you may want to consider giving some of your time by becoming a much-needed volunteer reader.

What: Volunteer one hour a week to read with children in our community!

  • Inspire a love of reading and books.
  • Read one-on-one with PreK – third-graders.
  • SMART students receive books for their home collection.
  • Training and support provided!

Where: An elementary school or Head Start program near you in the Portland Metro Area

When: Programs run during school hours—October 2017 – May 2018.

  • Time commitment varies—minimum one hour a week.

USAgencies Credit Union Wins Awards at Regional Association Conference

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Northwest Credit Union Association presented USAgencies Credit Union with two prestigious awards at its annual Amplify Convention Awards Banquet last night.

USAgencies Credit Union won a Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award for the work its staff has done to support their local community. Dora Maxwell was an early leader of the credit union movement. This award is given to credit unions that significantly improve the lives of members and non-members through community outreach. USAgencies’ staff members have given 100 volunteer hours serving more than 1,400 people and raising $10,500 to support various causes. In particular, the credit union used its social media presence and worked with its business partners to raise $3,000 to purchase books for young children.

The credit union also received a Desjardins Adult Financial Education award for its Feast and Forum program, in which staff members visit businesses to provide financial fitness programming during Financial Planning Month and Financial Literacy Month. The award is named after Alphonse Desjardins, who founded the first credit unions in the United States and Canada and who pioneered youth savings clubs and in-school banks.
