Costco’s Community Heroes Celebration April 30
Mid Oregon Credit Union has partnered with Costco Wholesale in Bend for their “Community Heroes Celebration” happening on Saturday evening, April 30. From 6 to 8 pm, local community heroes- Public safety (police, fire, 911 workers, etc), educators, medical industry employees and active & retired military plus their families and friends- are invited to a special shopping event at Costco. Costco membership is not required and no admission will be charged at the door.
The Community Heroes Celebration is the kickoff to Costco’s Miracle Balloon Campaign held every May. This annual campaign is the primary source of the fundraising effort made by Costco and its partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Members are invited to make a donation at the time of checkout and encouraged to write their names on the balloons, which are often displayed at the front of the warehouse. Locally the event supports OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, which has delivered hope and healing to families from throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington since 1926.
Fun Event For the Entire Family!
Costco will be providing some exclusive offers at this event. Becoming Costco members during this event attendees can receive either a $10 or $20 Costco Cash Card. Cake will be served from Costco’s bakery, and light refreshments will be served. Face painting and cookie decorating make things interesting for children. A large variety of community business partners will be present with special offers, sampling and more fun. Attendees who open a Mid Oregon account during the evening will receive a $10 Costco Cash Card which can be used that evening.
Mid Oregon Membership Especially Benefits
Mid Oregon began in 1957 with 8 Prineville school employees chartering Tri County Teachers Federal Credit Union. In 1982, after our name was changed to Mid Oregon Federal Credit Union, we merged with Central Oregon Federal Credit Union which served federal, state, county & city government employees. After Federal law was changed in the 1990’s to allow credit unions to serve communities, many medical industry employees have joined Mid Oregon.
As a result, of the almost 25,000 Mid Oregon members in Central Oregon, an estimated 6,000 of our members are currently employed or retired from one of these “Community Hero” groups. We anticipate seeing a lot of our members at Costco that evening, making this Community Heroes Celebration a perfect event for Mid Oregon to take part.
