Redwood Credit Union (RCU) is distributing $120,000 in grants to support the lifesaving and life-changing services of nine nonprofit organizations in Napa and American Canyon.
The grants will help address the most pressing needs of vulnerable populations throughout the region, including food, housing, health, financial wellness, and workforce development.
“Redwood Credit Union is changing the lives of Napa Valley’s children by supporting school-based wellness programs,” says Jennifer Stewart, executive director, Napa Valley Education Foundation (NVEF). “Now, more than ever, our young community members need extra support to engage in school, and this year’s grant will help continue transforming young lives and allow students to thrive at school. We are so grateful for RCU’s years of impactful partnership and community investment in Napa Valley youth.”
RCU invests in its communities by contributing time, energy, money, and leadership to support nonprofit organizations and groups offering meaningful assistance to improve their communities.
“Providing community support is what RCU is all about and the pandemic’s impact has underscored the need to assist even more,” said Brett Martinez, president and CEO of Redwood Credit Union. “We’re pleased to be able to support our nonprofit partners so they can keep providing vital services to help our communities succeed.”
