Special Olympics Names Westerra Community Partner of the Month

Special Olympics has named Westerra Credit Union their Community Partner of the Month! Special Olympics Colorado selected Westerra for this honor to thank employees and members for their contributions and volunteerism—especially during the upcoming Polar Plunge Series which launched February 23! Westerra's sponsorship helps raise funds for the Unified School Strategy program to help more than 25,000 Coloradans participate in Special Olympics—and to help end discrimination against people with intellectual disabilities.  

Westerra has been involved with Special Olympics Colorado as an Annual Partner since 2014. In addition to sponsoring the Polar Plunge Series, the Westerra Team raises funds and takes the plunge for Special Olympics athletes. Westerra holds R-Word campaigns in every branch location where employees even wear Special Olympics t-shirts! Westerra Credit Union recently won two national awards through the Credit Union National Association in connection with this partnership to help raise awareness for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Westerra's support helps fund programming in 361 Unified Champion Schools. Westerra also donates $52.80 to Special Olympics Colorado for all new accounts when you mention Special Olympics.
