The donation came from a statewide contest held in conjunction with Oregon’s You Belong credit union awareness campaign. For the contest, consumers were asked, “How would you improve your community with $1,000?” The response rate was overwhemingly in favor of animal shelter services in Lane County. Northwest Community CU and SELCO Community CU, both of Eugene, donated an additional $1,000 each to bring the total to $3,000. During the check presentation, Kylie Belachaikovsky, volunteer and outreach coordinator for the animal shelter, noted that people who rely on the shelter systems often have lower or no incomes “We have formed strong partnerships with several Lane County non profit agencies whose focus is low- or no-income pet owners and services, not only for their pets, but also for abandoned and homeless animals,” said Jan Burch, director of community involvement, SELCO Community CU. “SELCO understands the need for support from local area businesses and is proud to make a difference.” Check presentation attendees included contest entrants and Lane County residents Rita Castillo and Lori Smith, who were in favor of supporting the shelter; and staffers from the Credit Union Association of Oregon; SELCO Community CU; Northwest Community CU; Oregon Community CU, Eugene; Oregonians FCU, Portland; and O.U.R. FCU, Shelton.
