UCCU always takes an active role in our community and 2019 was no exception. Over the course of the year, our employees donated either their time or money to multiple organizations in the community including:

  • The Good News of Christmas Campaign
  • Quincy Medical Group’s Women’s Health Center
  • Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign
  • United Way’s Annual Day of Caring
  • Teaching classes for Junior Achievement in the Quincy school district

UCCU also made numerous donations to local organizations, including:

  • The Advocacy Network for Children
  • Cornerstone Foundation’s Dancing with the Local Stars
  • Community Cancer Crush
  • Jackson-Lincoln Swimming Complex
  • Quincy Hospitality House
  • Salvation Army Christmas Fund

UCCU’s Benevolent Fund also donated $1,050 to four members and their families.

Through the generosity of our membership, UCCU was able to make our largest donation yet to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital by raising $5,792.80 in July!  Members also donated money to help fill the food banks for Horizons in Quincy and Douglass Community Center in Hannibal.

Good News of Christmas

Since its inception in 1988, The Good News of Christmas campaign has raised more than $1.75 million and logged countless volunteer hours to help more 1,500 families get back on their feet.

We sure are glad it’s around though!
