Members Exchange is involved in several community events, and donates time and money to a variety of causes. In the past, Members Exchange members, employees and volunteers have raised thousands of dollars for local charities and are proud to support our community.
March of Dimes:
Members Exchange began supporting the March of Dimes in 2003. Each year the credit union has special fundraising projects to raise money for this special charity. Employees also participate in the annual March of Dimes walk (March for Babies). The walk is held annually and many participate who’ve been touched by the March of Dimes mission in a very personal way and to bring awareness to others about premature births.
Children’s Miracle Network:
For many years, Members Exchange Credit Union has sponsored the Children’s Miracle Network and has raised thousands of dollars for CMN. Children’s Miracle Network is 170 hospitals serving all kids, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our local children’s hospital, the Blair E. Batson at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, works closely with its partners to raise money to help sick children.
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program:
Members Exchange tries to make the holidays a little brighter for a needy child in the local community. By participating in this program, holiday gifts are provided for children age 12 and younger. Tags are provided by the Salvation Army that lists the child’s name, age, and a few items they want for Christmas. At each branch location, the tags are placed on the Christmas trees and members and employees are able to choose a child to sponsor. This program has been tremendously successful for many years and children all over the state have benefited from the generosity of all sponsors.
MS Blood Services
Members Exchange holds periodic blood drives not only to get blood donations, but to also raise awareness of this important need that saves lives each and every day.
Members Exchange raises money and accepts donations during the holiday season for the MS Stewpot. Employees volunteer their time to help serve at the stew pot.
MORA (Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency)
MORA is an independent, not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO). Members Exchange provides incentives to employees to become a registered organ donor and for those that are already registered. Member education is provided by MORA. Periodically, they visit each branch and set up on-site registration tables and provide material on how to become a registered organ and tissue donor. Organ, eye and tissue transplants offer patients a new chance at healthy, productive and normal lives and return them to their families, friends and communities.
