MCCU's Marshall High School Student-Run Branch Donates to School LINKS Program

linksStudent employees at Marshall Community Credit Union’s (MCCU) student-run branch, located inside Marshall High School (MHS), completed their fifth annual “Save a Little More Thoughtfully” promotion. The promotion, aimed at raising money for the school’s LINKS program as well as increasing deposits done at the school branch, ran from Nov. 30 through Jan. 18. Throughout the promotional period, matched deposits made at the MHS branch, up to $25, and donated those matching funds to the MHS LINKS Program.

In the end, students and staff at MHS made 36 deposits totaling more than $550. MCCU was able to match up to $25 for each deposit and in the end was able to donate $450 to LINKS.

“Through the promotion, we were not only able to drive more savings deposits to the [branch], but we were also able to give back to the school that allows us to do so much. Something that is important not only to MCCU, but to Marshall High School and the students there as well” said MCCU’s Financial Education Coordinator, Andrea Tucker.

The MHS LINKS program is a peer-to-peer program for the schools' Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) students. LINKS students become a mentor, role model and friend to an ASD student. LINKS members provide classwork and friendship support to ASD students in general education classrooms, as well as social support at lunch and at extracurricular activities.

The MHS student-run branch is available for all MHS students, faculty and staff members. The branch is open every Friday in the school cafeteria during both lunch hours.
