Not For Profit but for Service – 2021 WECU Donations – Newton branch
At White Eagle Credit Union giving back to our communities is a major part of we do. This year is no different, as we begin presenting our 2021 WECU Donations checks to various organizations. Our Newton Branch selected the organizations below for 2021:
WECU Presents check to Summer lunch program. White Eagle CU presented a check to the Augusta Summer Lunch School program. The summer lunch program is going on now thru July 27th except for Fourth of July, Thursday, July 4th. Youth ages 1 to 18 can stop by Robinson Elementary School to pick up their lunches. Robinson Elementary is located at 1301 Helen Street Augusta Kansas. Lunches will be available from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm, Monday through Friday for their free lunch.

White Eagle presented a check to Meals on Wheels on Friday, June 14, 2019.
Meals on Wheels delivers a hot, nutritious noon meal to home-bound people age 60 + each weekday. More than just a meal the program provides a friendly, familiar face at the doors of home-bound people every day. Family members and friends are rest assured when they cannot check up on their loved ones, the Meals on Wheels volunteer will be there for them. And for the tax paying public, Meals on Wheels saves valuable financial resources. The cost to deliver Meals on Wheels to one senior for one year is $1,900. Placement in a state funded nursing facility costs the taxpayer up to $40,000 per placement. Meals on Wheels is a valuable lifeline for many people who have difficulty advocating for themselves.
White Eagle Credit Union presented a check to the Saint Francis Ministries. Saint Francis Ministries serves children and families, young adults and refugees with a variety of programs aimed at doing the most good.
Since 1945, Saint Francis Ministries has been dedicated to the needs of children and youth. They advocate for them and work to protect them while doing their best to ensure that every child we serve gets a chance at a happy and fulfilling life.
As a non-profit, faith-based organization, St Francis Ministries place great stock in the value of both traditional and non-traditional families and believe strong families make children’s lives better. What began as a home for boys on the Kansas prairie is now a multi-faceted child and family services ministry serving over 31,000 people in Kansas, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Illinois, Texas, El Salvador, and Honduras with a broad range of programs and services.
St Francis Ministries helps strengthen and heal families while providing for the health and security of children. Though rooted in the Episcopal tradition, Saint Francis Ministries is an independent not-for-profit organization dedicated to the protection, nurturing, and healing of children and families in body, mind, and spirit. To that end, while partnering with government agencies in supporting children and families in crisis, Saint Francis Ministries honors religious freedom and is also committed to allowing children and families in its care to participate in religious activities on a voluntary basis.
