Electro Savings Raises $273 for Circle of Concern

Children and adults lined up during the Wildwood BBQ Bash at the Electro Savings Credit Union booth to have their faces painted and to design their own buttons. The credit union collected a $5 donation for each face painting with all donations going to Circle of Concern, a local non-profit organization that feeds the hungry and provides long-term and emergency assistance to low-income families in western St. Louis County.  Money-themed, gourmet lollipops were also sold to bring the total to $273 donated in the four hours that the face painting was open at the booth.

“We stand by the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people’ and feel fortunate to be able to help make a difference in the community by supporting a local organization that does so much to help local families,” said Electro Savings community development specialist Laura Mugge.
