North Coast CU wins Wash. Foundation Legacy Award
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (8/4/10)--The Washington Credit Union Foundation will present its Legacy Award to North Coast CU, Bellingham, at an awards ceremony Sept. 16. North Coast is receiving the award for its support of Bite of Skagit. Bite of Skagit raises funding and awareness to support the Skagit Food Share Alliance, which facilitates the acquisition of locally grown produce to distribute to 13 area food banks through the Skagit County Community Action Agency. The event has acquired new partnerships with nine restaurants, local banks and the Latino farming community. The credit union donated volunteer hours. The project is unique, “involving many community partners, which is what made it stand out to receive this honor,” said Earlene Fantz, CEO of American Lake CU, Tacoma, Wash., and awards committee chair. Terry Belcoe, president/CEO of North Coast, said the credit union is passionate about the project. The Legacy Award was established in 2003. Last year’s winner was Harborstone CU, Tacoma, Wash.
