CU System
Three CUs Assist With Cleanup
MERCED, Calif. (9/9/13)--Volunteers from three California credit unions teamed up Aug. 24 to rebuild a local outdoor educational site.
 
About 120 volunteers representing Educational Employees CU, Fresno, Merced (Calif.) School Employees FCU and Merco CU, also of Merced, put in nearly 300 collective hours of work to spruce up Camp Green Meadows, an outdoor school located in Fish Camp near the Wawona entrance to Yosemite National Park.
 
The volunteers accomplished in one morning a volume of work that would have taken the Camp Green Meadows staff months to complete, Green Meadows Principal Bob Basset told the Merced Sun-Star (Sept. 2).
 
Among the projects the credit union volunteers completed were painting picnic tables, splitting firewood, rebuilding an archery backstop and constructing a retaining wall.
 
Camp Green Meadows is operated by the Merced County Office of Education. The school serves students from throughout California in single-day and weeklong outdoor settings and functions as a recreation camp in the summer.
 
In addition to credit union employees and their families, students from Merced and El Capitan high schools assisted with the work.
