Making a Difference with Community Partners

Dec 30, 2011 | In The Community

Over the years, SCE FCU and the Foundation have developed strong partnerships with a variety of community agencies. These organizations provide much-needed services to the underserved families in the areas surrounding the Credit Union’s branches. If you’re interested in youth and family services, or for opportunities to volunteer, please contact one of these wonderful organizations.
