Every holiday season, Toys for Tots donation boxes fill each of Ascentra Credit Union’s branches from Muscatine, Iowa to the Quad Cities and up to Clinton, Iowa. It is a tradition at the credit union that has led their staff to support the organization by raising additional funds through organizing a bake sale and donating $5 to dress Casual for a Cause, then using the proceeds to go on a toy shopping spree.
Beyond all of this, Ascentra wanted to help make an even bigger impact this holiday season. With their commitment of giving back to the community, they wanted to run an auto loan promotion that gives back to a local nonprofit organization and to their members in the areas they serve. Due to Ascentra’s heavy involvement with Toys for Tots, it was a natural fit. They introduced a promotion that would give the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program $50 for every new auto loan brought to the credit union while also giving $50 to the borrower.
