[Danville, PA] – Service 1st Federal Credit Union’s 2019 Community Savings Challenge helped members save 1.5 million dollars in combined interest and benefited six organizations. Representatives from participating charities and Service 1st recently gathered at the Pine Barn Inn, located in Danville, to celebrate the difference they made by working together on this four-month initiative.

During the Community Savings Challenge, Service 1st reminded everyone how important it is to get a financial checkup. These checkups help establish healthy financial habits, and often identify ways members are able to save more. After completing a financial checkup, members had the opportunity to vote for one of six local charities. These organizations each received a donation reflective of the percent of votes received.

The following charities partnered with Service 1st for this year’s Challenge: AGAPE, Bloomsburg; Candy’s Place, Wilkes-Barre; Caring for Kids Backpack Program, Sunbury; Disabled American Veterans, Susquehanna Valley Chapter 47, Williamsport; Mobile Health of Evangelical, Lewisburg; and Summit Early Learning, Mifflinburg.
