Community Involvement

Making a difference in in Berks County

Community involvement is a big part of the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People.” At Discovery FCU, we care very strongly about helping out in the Berks County community. Here are some examples of the ways we get involved.

Holiday Gifts for a Family

For the holiday season the team at Discovery FCU “adopted” a family living at Opportunity House. A single mother and her three sons got everything on their wish list and more! We hosted an angel tree, collected donations, did a jeans day internal fundraiser, and more to make it a great Christmas! Learn more here.

Humane Pennsylvania

The Walk for the Animals in support of Humane Pennsylvania was a great opportunity to give back to our community and the animals we love. 2024 was our first year participating and it was huge success. With our team of eleven, we were able to raise/donate just under $1,000 to help animals in need.

Breast Cancer Support Services

Discovery FCU is a huge supporter of Breast Cancer Support Services of Berks County (BCSS). Our staff cares deeply about this cause, as many have been touched by breast cancer and they are motivated to help in any way they can.

Annually we sponsor the Team Holly Hear Our Voices Run/Walk and the Pink Passion for Fashion event.

This October, we also took the whole month to fundraise and spread awareness for BCSS. We planned festivities with a “Paint the Branch Pink” initiative, selling pink butterflies for a $1 donation. We also had staff wear special pink t-shirts on Fridays and asked them to make a donation in order to wear sneakers on Fridays. In total, the credit union raised $400 in October for this excellent cause. Read more here.

Trick-or-Treating for Opportunity House

Team members from Discovery FCU were thrilled to be invited to the Second Street Learning and Technology Center at Opportunity House to hand out candy to the students who wore the cutest Halloween costumes. (For their privacy, we didn’t get any photos of them, but rest assured, they were the cutest!) We’re so happy to have been a special part of their day and the Halloween season.

Financial Reality Fairs

Financial literacy is an important topic for us at Discovery FCU.  One way we help to spread this important set of skills in Berks County is through joining with other credit unions to provide Financial Reality Fairs at local schools. In the 2023/2024 school year, Discovery FCU helped out a at high schools in Wyomissing, Governor Mifflin, Tulpehocken, Hamburg, Schuylkill Valley, Reading, and Conrad Weiser school districts. Learn more about Financial Reality Fairs here.

Community Appreciation Week

In addition to the fun Member Appreciation Day you might expect, we came up with a way to support local nonprofits as well!  The credit union offered up donations to the member’s choice of four charitable organizations for each new account opened. The organizations featured were the Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Breast Cancer Support Services of Berks, Children’s Alopecia Project, and Helping Harvest Food Bank. The program resulted in $400 worth of donations. The credit union also held a food drive for Helping Harvest Food Bank, which resulted in several boxes of food for the organization’s Weekender program. Read more here.
