New Horizons in the Community
"Horizons Helping Hands"
New Horizons Credit Union believes in giving back to the community and living the credit union industry philosophy of "People Helping People." For this reason, we have named our community efforts - Horizons Helping Hands. New Horizons continues to assist with sponsorships and donations, and we also realize the importance of putting some skin in the game and volunteering!
During 2017, New Horizons Credit Union is committed to help: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Penelope House, and Ronald McDonald House as our Corporate Charities. However we also support other worthwhile community endeavors such as:
