Children’s Miracle Network
Every year Progressions raises money (thousands) for the local Children’s Miracle Network as part of the national CUs for Kids campaign–most of which was raised through our annual holiday loan payment skip program!
Tree of Sharing
In 2012, Progressions Credit Union Employees participated in the Tree of Sharing. The Tree of Sharing for the past 30 years has been providing gifts for the often forgotten members of the Spokane community at Christmas time. This was the first year that Progressions Credit Union partnered with the Tree of Sharing. In 2012, the 60 agencies that the Tree of Sharing serve requested 6,983 gifts, and with the help from Progressions Credit Union, all the gift requests were filled. For more information, visit the Tree of Sharing today.

National Letter Carriers’ Food Drive
Progressions Credit Union employees team up annually with the National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 442 to support the Annual NALC Food Drive. This has a great impact on the community by helping over 15,000 people each month and providing food to 21 food banks in the Spokane area.
The NALC Food Drive is conducted in all 50 states and collects donations of non-perishable food items for hungry families in need. The NALC food drive is the largest one-day drive in the country. Each year letter carriers in over 10,000 locations pick-up and deliver food items left on the doorstep of participating households. These donations are collected on the day of the food drive and are given back to food banks and pantries in the area to benefit local families.
Progressions Credit Union supplies the collection bags that are delivered to the homes of over approximately 175,000 Spokane area residents several days prior to the food drive. Collection barrels were located at each of our branches in addition to those at the local post office locations. During the NALC Food Drive, postal workers, Progressions employees and other volunteers traveled postal routes to pick-up the donations from each household.
Washington Credit Union Foundation (WCUF)
Your credit union is an active contributor to WCUF. This foundation was established to support and promote credit union development and credit unions’ commitment to social responsibility. WCUF donates disaster relief funds to credit unions and members affected by natural disasters. The foundation also donated $100,000 and helped raise over $2 million to provide funding for a fun TV program, BizKid$, to teach kids the value of money. This program is written and produced by the creators of Bill Nye, the Science Guy in partnership with Junior Achievement.
Chief Garry Park Neighborhood Council
Progressions Credit Union is an active member in the Chief Garry Park neighborhood. Progressions is a proud supporter of the neighborhood council by volunteering and giving resources to numerous events like local BBQ’s and the annual Kidical Mass Bike Ride event. This year (2013) Progressions donated 25 youth helmets to the Kidical Mass bike ride event, promoting bike safety and neighborhood unity.
Habitat for Humanity
Progressions Credit Union is an active donor to Habitat for Humanity. Recently Progressions Credit Union donated money to Blitz Build, a Habitat for Humanity event that provided a house to the Webb and Legend families whom have never had a house before. This house was the 212th home that Habitat for Humanity-Spokane has built for Spokane Families.
El Katif Shrine Circus
We are a proud sponsor of the El Katif Shrine Circus. Progressions Credit Union sponsorship provides tickets to elementary schools throughout Spokane, and underprivileged individuals who otherwise would not be able to attend.
Your credit union sponsors a backboard and a team at the largest 3-on-3 street basketball tournament in the world. Be sure to look for them out on the court each year!
