Thank you Northwest Downey Little League for inviting us to help kick off the season at the 2022 Opening Ceremony! We had a great afternoon filled with games, music, food, and team spirit. Good luck to all the young athletes competing this season. DFCU is rooting for you!
Thank you Somerset High School for inviting us to teach students about saving and budgeting and letting them take a Bite of Reality! Bite of Reality is an interactive financial literacy simulation in which students are given a budget and have to "shop" for necessities, such as housing, groceries, and transportation, all while staying under budget. We had a great time teaching students budgeting skills and how they can use these skills in the real world.
DFCU’s annual Adopt a Family Program has returned once again and this year, we are happy to have adopted a total of 12 families from our communities of Compton, Bellflower, and Downey. Thanks to the contributions from Team DFCU, we were able to donate $1,800 to families in need of some extra holiday cheer. To celebrate, families were invited to join us in a night filled with delicious food, fun games, giveaways, gifts, and holiday spirit. A special thank you to Downey Unified School District, Caring Connections Bellflower, Our Place Healing Hearts, and The Children’s Institute for your support, and for everything you do to support the families and children in our community.
