Lacamas CU gives food baskets to needy members



Camas — Lacamas Community Credit Union donated 20 festive holiday dinner baskets to its members in late December as part of its Community Partnership program.

The program allows members to nominate fellow members to receive a holiday basket with groceries and a gift card. Lacamas President and CEO Kathleen Romane started the dinner basket program in 2008 in response to the recession.

“We know that some of our members could use a helping hand to make the holiday season more enjoyable. Providing the means for a family to share a holiday meal allows Lacamas to demonstrate its care for our members’ well-being,” she said.
