Message from Our President/CEO
Becoming President/CEO of San Diego Metropolitan Credit Union is a great honor and privilege. I am fortunate to have a dedicated team of employees, volunteer Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee working hard to uphold our commitment to serving our members, as well as our local communities where we work, live and play.
True to the credit union moto of “People Helping People,” San Diego Metropolitan Credit Union (METRO) once again embraced that mission by supporting Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) through the 2017 Annual Miracle Month of May fundraising campaign.
METRO has played an active role in supporting CU4Kids and the Miracle Month of May campaign since its inception in 1996. This year’s campaign was truly a great success, and on behalf of our Credit Union I extend our heartfelt thanks to the many members and METRO employees, who contributed funds to our efforts.
In addition to the displays of Miracle Balloons, which were sold throughout the Credit Union, our staff decorated their branches and departments in creative, fun and youthful themes. Each department was successful in rallying our vendors to provide raffle items and monetary donations. Through their combined efforts, our staff raised funds by hosting bake sales, BBQ lunches, raffles and notably our 3rd Annual Golf Tournament, which was held at Riverwalk Golf Club on Friday, June 2, 2017.
This year, we exceeded our $14,000 goal raising $14,145, matched by the CO-OP Miracle Match Program for a total donation of $24,145 for Rady Children’s Hospital. The CU4Kids campaign exceeded its overall goal by 10% raising $154,125.
We appreciate all of the contributions and hard work that made this year’s campaign such a success to help make miracles happen. It is another example of METRO’s strong commitment to our community!
At METRO, we are optimistic about the future and extremely grateful for the continued support and trust from you, our loyal members. With a strong net worth, we will focus on continuing to build upon our financial health while working on much needed technological enhancements to provide greater access and convenience to your accounts.
Wishing you and your family a safe and fun 4th of July!
