Solarity Credit Union employees donate 450 volunteer hours and more than $10,000 to local non-profits

In February, Solarity Credit Union President and CEO, Mina Worthington, delivered more than $10,000 in payroll donations to YWCA Yakima, the Yakima Humane Society and United Way of Central Washington on behalf of the credit union’s 140 employees.

Solarity team members are passionate about supporting local organizations that provide vital services to the community. “Our employees are committed to making the Yakima Valley a better place to live and work through their generous support of causes that have meaningful impact within the communities we serve,” said Worthington.

In total, the credit union’s employees donated $3,744 to YWCA Yakima, $4,622 to the Yakima Humane Society, $1,153 to the local United Way chapter and $522 to Yakima Habitat for Humanity in 2023. The credit union itself gave $87,130 in donations and sponsorships. Solarity employees also contributed 450 volunteer hours, equivalent to $15,692 (the value of a volunteer hour in Washington state was estimated at $34.87 in 2021).

Cheri Kilty, YWCA’s Executive Director, stated, “We deeply appreciate Solarity’s continued partnership and giving. We can count on them throughout the year for support, and it means so much to us, but also to the people we serve.”

Jeff Boyd, Executive Director at Yakima Humane Society, said, “We so appreciate this substantial donation. The funds go a long way toward helping us provide food and care for the animals that currently reside at our adoption center.”

Steve Brown, Chief Lending Officer at Solarity Credit Union and member of the board for United Way of Central Washington, had this to say, “I’m so proud of our employees here at Solarity for their generous donations. Together with United Way, we can continue the fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.”

All four organizations provide critical services to our community and are always in need of donations and volunteers. Solarity is proud to support these non-profits as community partners in 2024. Please read Solarity’s full 2023 year-in-review impact report here:
