These funds were in addition to each credit unions’ efforts in raising money for BSSS’s 25th annual Rubber Duck Regatta, an annual fundraising event to prevent elder abuse.
“As credit unions, it is our goal to help and support the people and organizations that do so much for each of us,” said Brandon Scala, President of the Midland Empire Chapter of Credit Unions. “Big Sky Senior Services is a vital organization that prioritizes one of our most vulnerable populations, and we are proud to assist them in any way that we can. We look forward to being committed partners for many years to come.”
The Billings-area credit unions’ support goes beyond just contributing financially. The chapter has also been active sponsors for BSSS’s Rubber Duck Regatta fundraising event for the past 10 years.
