We Tend to Care

OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE LIFE BETTER FOR ERIE COUNTY – AND THAT'S A PROMISE WE INTEND TO KEEP.

At Tendto Credit Union, our investment in Erie, its people and its institutions is a deposit toward our shared future. What’s good for all is good for us and good for you. Together, let's make a difference right here in our local community. To Erie — lake, county and people.

Current Community Involvement

Tendto Credit Union invites you to make a donation and help us make a difference in our community. We are currently fundraising for the BackPack Program at Second Harvest Food Bank. This program provides children with nutritious, child-friendly food when other resources, such as school lunches and after-school meals or snacks, are not available. Backpacks are discreetly distributed to participating children at schools on Fridays and helps provide the proper nutrition necessary for overall growth, physical and cognitive development and satisfactory performance in school.

Stop in any branch and purchase a candy bar. All proceeds benefit the BackPack Program at Second Harvest.


2018 Community Outreach Efforts

March of Dimes

Tendto Credit Union participated for the 15th year in a row in the March of Dimes “March for Babies” walk on Sunday, April 29, 2018 to support stronger, healthier babies right here in the Erie community. Numerous credit union employees and their families joined us for the walk around the Penn State Behrend campus. Additionally, two team members volunteered their time at the Memoral Garden during the event.  In total, the credit union raised $2,820.75 through Sarris candy bar sales, employee jean days and pledges obtained from the staff members who walked.
