Ume Credit Union Hosts Holiday Toy Drive

UME Cares Credit Union announced that it will be participating in the Burbank Coordinating Council’s Holiday Basket program.

Donations can be dropped off in UMe’s lobby now through December 6, 2019 during business hours.

The credit union is hosting the toy drive through UMeHelps, an initiative that allows its members and the Burbank community at large to give back to local charities and individuals needing assistance.

UMeHelps is happy to support the Burbank Coordinating Council. Every year, the program connects families in our community with people and organizations that are willing to provide them with food and gifts for their children for the holidays.

UMe Credit Union Launches Community Support Program

Helping neighbors builds strong communities. Continuing a tradition of community support, UMe Federal Credit Union, in Burbank, is excited to announce the creation of a new program called UMeHelps. UMeHelps will provide assistance to the greater Burbank community by partnering with local non-profit organizations and focusing on raising money and goods for those in need.

As a local credit union, UMe is intimately aware of the hardship many of our community members have faced during these difficult economic times. Through UMeHelps, the credit union hopes to help relieve some of the burden and provide hope for our neighbors.

UMeHelps is a concept that began with the renaming of the credit union last spring. The new name, UMe, is a combination of YOU+ME, and is directly correlated to the strong personal relationship the credit union enjoys with its membership. In the same spirit, UMeHelps is designed for the credit union to give back to the Burbank community at large, and for its members to also participate in the process. UMeHelps will kick off on June 1st with a food drive for BTAC, Burbank Temporary Aid Center.

BTAC is dedicated to providing the poor, working poor, and homeless of the local community with basic services they need to live with dignity, and to serve citizens of the city in times of emergency and disaster.

In the spirit of the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” – we’re asking UMe members to help us collect donations for the Burbank Temporary Aid Center (BTAC). You can drop off donations at the Credit Union anytime during the month of June.
