Stay Warm Bags
For the third consecutive year, Service CU donated Stay Warm bags that include a blanket, hat, scarf and gloves to non-profit organizations around the state for distribution to their communities.

Service CU Mac Off
The New Hampshire Food Bank held a Mac Off at Service CU’s corporate headquarters in November, bringing together 60 Service CU staff for a competition to pack as much mac and cheese as they could for NH residents in need. The six teams had to measure, weigh and seal all the ingredients, then pack the boxes in a timed race. Service CU donated the food costs and, in total, our staff packed 3,527 bags of mac and cheese, which equals over 21,000 meals.
USO Thanks for Thanksgiving
Teaming up with the USO in Baumholder, Stuttgart, Bavaria and Kaiserslautern, Service CU provided soldiers and their families frozen turkeys and Visa gift cards. Service CU volunteers personally distributed the donations.
Helping Food Pantries in Need
The food pantries in our local communities are a vital support system for those facing food insecurity and Service CU was eager to help in November. Service CU branches made a $1,000 donation to a local food pantry in their community, totaling $40,000 in donations across New Hampshire, Grand Forks, ND and Falmouth, MA.
To get in the Halloween spirit, branches both stateside and overseas participated in Halloween events in their local communities. From Durham to Franklin in New Hampshire, to Sembach and Vilseck in Germany, Service CU was handing out candy at Trunk or Treats, Pumpkin Festivals and Boo Bashes throughout October.
Krempels Center King Challenge
On October 15, Service CU was the presenting sponsor of the Krempels Center King Challenge, a charity bicycle ride in Stratham, NH. The Krempels Center is a Portsmouth-based nonprofit that focuses on improving the lives of people living with a brain injury. What’s better than supporting a wonderful nonprofit? Having a team of 10 Service CU staff from both stateside and overseas participate in the event!
Landstuhl Fisher House
Service CU took part in the Landstuhl Fisher House Fall Clean Up. The Service CU volunteers raked leaves, pulled weeds and beautified the grounds around the Fisher House in time for the autumn season. Then the credit union made a donation to the Fisher House to support their work providing a “home away from home” when urgent medical care is needed at no cost to families of military personnel stationed in Europe.
