Rockford Community Federal Credit Union hosted a participation challenge within each of their three Student Run Credit Union branches. Congratulations to each of the following classes, Mrs. Mattioli’s 4th grade class at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary School, Ms. Sollner’s 5th grade classroom at Belmont Elementary, and Mrs. Moore’s 6th grade class at Our Lady of Consolation School. Each winning classroom received a pizza party for the students plus the teacher received a $100 donation towards classroom supplies.

The philosophy of all credit unions is “people helping people, to help themselves.” Rockford Community Federal Credit Union, a local community credit union, hopes by making these donations to the classrooms it will help foster stronger education for future generations!
