LBS Financial Donates School Supplies to Three Districts

LBS Financial Credit Union worked with three local school districts this summer to collect school supplies for the 2016-2017 school year. The Credit Union partnered with Long Beach Unified School District and the Long Beach Education Foundation (donation to Herrera Elementary School), Bellflower Unified School District (donation to Somerset Continuation School) and ABC Unified School District (donation to Cerritos High School) for its sixth annual Adopt-a-School Program. Members of the Credit Union and the public dropped off supplies throughout the summer, supplemented by purchased items from LBS Financial employees and the Credit Union. A special thank you to our Members and employees for supporting this project and helping us make an impact this year!

LBS Financial Credit Union Employees and Families Contribute 200 hours to Clean Up the Coastline in Long Beach

Over 100 LBS Financial Credit Union employees, friends and family members volunteered more than 200 combined hours of their time to clean up a portion of the Long Beach coastline at several beach cleanups in 2016. LBS Financial has actively participated in the City’s Adopt-a-Beach program since 2011, adopting the popular stretch of coastline between 14th Place and 19th Place off of Ocean Boulevard. When adopting the beach, cleaning does not just take place on the sand but also in the parking lot and bike paths. The Credit Union is committed to cleaning up the beach a minimum of three times per year. The LBS Financial team cleaned the beach in March, May and July as part of their commitment to give back to the communities they serve.
