This past holiday season, St. Cloud Federal Credit Union offered a Skip-A-Loan service to members. The goal of the service was to provide members with an option to accommodate for extra expenditures revolving around the holidays but give back to the community at the same time. The result was the Skip-A-Loan service. This option allowed members to “skip a loan” payment by paying a $30 fee. St. Cloud Federal Credit Union in return used a portion of that fee to give back to the St. Cloud area community.
The program was a great success. Many members participated in this service to allow for a more flexible budget during the holiday season. From the proceeds of the Skip-A-Loan service, St. Cloud Federal Credit Union was able to donate $2,500 to the Boys and Girls Club of Central MN. This money went towards the rebuilding of the Roosevelt School Gym that burned down last June. The destruction of the Roosevelt School Gym was a devastating loss to the neighboring Boys and Girls Club of Central MN. The loss was felt most by the older kids. Many of the older kids are mostly attracted to the Boys and Girls Club to play organized sports in the gym. Not having an indoor structure for sports made it difficult for the Boys and Girls Club staff to plan organized sports. With the construction of a new gym, the Boys and Girls Club of Central MN will once again have the ability to plan more organized sports.

Even though the holidays have come and gone, we encourage our community to continue to reach out to those in need whether it is through financial donations, volunteering, or random acts of kindness.
The St. Cloud Federal Credit Union would like to thank all of the community members for their help in getting the gymnasium rebuilt. We are honored to have taken part in this and would like to thank our members who took part in the Skip-A-Loan program.
