Local Partnerships

HFCU Local Partnerships

Credit Unions were founded on the philosophy of “people helping people” and that’s what we strive to achieve within our local community. Below you will see who we are currently partnering with and how you can help these amazing organizations.

2020 Southern Tier Heart Walk

Horizons FCU has participated in the Southern Tier Heart Walk since 2014 and this will be our 7th year walking. The American Heart Association is very important to us and we want to help the cause as much as we can.

We’re not just walking for our health. We’re finding big science, like the science that created the artificial heart valve. Help us reach our goal by joining our team or making a donation today to help scientists develop lifesaving breakthroughs. Together, we can make healthier, longer lives possible for everyone.

Please consider donating to our team!

We had the honor of visiting Willow’s Wings Animal Sanctuary and Rescue and meeting Willow Sullivan on November 20th to fully understand all the amazing things she does for these animals. For Willow it’s all about helping these animals and she fully accepts that her sanctuary will most likely be a forever home for these animals. We are so lucky to have an amazing organization like this in our community. Please watch the video above to see more about Willow’s Wings.

Horace Mann Elementary School

Horace Mann Elementary School is located on the west side of the city, Horace Mann serves approximately 300 students each year. Their student-centered school ranges from kindergarten through 5th grade.

Our partnership with HME started back in March of 2018, where we donated benches to their “Calming Bench” program. We themed our benches to “Throw Your Troubles Away.” It allows students to remove themselves from bad situations by sitting on the bench, writing down what is bothering them, and “throwing” their troubles away.

Our coat drive with HME, called “Thanks For Giving” coat drive, just recently ended on December 31st. We will delivering the last of the donations in the next couple days.

Thank you again to our staff and members for all your generous donations!
