On December 1st, Cobalt Credit Union announced the donation recipients as part of its annual “Holiday Helping Hand” campaign, focusing on causes dedicated to providing food, shelter, and mental health resources. Breaking previous records, Cobalt Credit Union generously contributed $23,000 to 23 nonprofit organizations spanning from Council Bluffs to Lincoln. The Credit Union partnered with Offutt Officers’ Spouses’ Club and Wreaths Across America at Omaha National Cemetery, contributing $525 to honor the gravesites of those who have served. Additionally, Cobalt supported deploying airmen and their spouses through the “97th Commander Spouse” initiative, providing curated bags filled with thoughtful items. Participating in the Offutt Angel Tree program, the SAC Foundation, Cobalt Credit Union’s charitable arm, allocated $600 to fulfill the holiday wishes of 10 families associated with Offutt Air Force Base. For those airmen and women who are not with their families during the holidays, Cobalt donated $500 to the Greater Bellevue Area Chamber of Commerce “Operation Holiday Cheer.” An additional donation of $500 was made through the credit union’s partnership with the Sarpy Chamber. Remembering the children who could not be with their families, Cobalt contributed $2,700 to the Boys Town Holiday Pasta Dinner. SAC Foundation’s commitment extended to Eastern Nebraska Veterans Home, where snacks and handmade ornaments were provided to residents. Furthermore, the Foundation supported families at LeMay and Peter Sarpy Elementary School by offering holiday gifts and gift cards for grocery purchases. Cobalt Credit Union’s Fuel Committee came together to gift presents and holiday cheer to a family of seven through the Ronald McDonald House Adopt a Family program. Cobalt employees spent 2,000 hours volunteering throughout the year, demonstrating their dedication to giving back to the community. The credit union also successfully concluded its annual United Way campaign, with employees pledging a portion of their earnings each pay period. The campaign reached a record close, contributing $19,925 to United Way of the Midlands. “In the spirit of giving, we are honored to extend a helping hand to our community, providing crucial support to those in need. This season’s record-breaking contributions underscore Cobalt’s commitment to fostering a stronger community,” said Robin Larsen, President/CEO, Cobalt Credit Union.
