Community Events

Concern for the Community. 

Cooperatives around the world operate according to the same core principles and values.  Your credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative and we follow those same principles for the greater good of our community, credit union, and members.


Children’s Miracle Network

South Bay Credit Union & CU4KIDS:Children's Miracle Networ Hospitals

South Bay Credit Union has been working through CU4KIDS for benefit of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Each year we participate in a number of fundraisers and 100% of every dollar collected goes back into the CMN Hospital which serves our community, the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Since 1996, the Credit Unions for Kids program has generated over $80 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals; $9 million in 2018 alone! But the need continues to grow.

Help us to change a child’s life. Every single penny helps! One child’s cancer treatment costs $75,000 on average. Join us in helping the children of South Bay. Together, we can change a child’s life.

Beach Cities Toy Drive

South Bay Credit Union will be collecting toys to donate to The Beach Cities Toy Drive, in cooperation with the Cities of Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach during the Holiday Season. Each year we set out collection bins and ask our members to assist us in bringing more cheer to local families that are in need.

Suggestions for giving include:  gift certificates for shoes, clothing, food, gas, phone minutes, crayons & markers, coloring books, puzzles, handheld games, stuffed toys, large lego toys, phonic toys/books,  makeup, arts & crafts, sunscreen, slippers, jackets, music/music players and costumes…anything you would have liked as a child.  Please, only unopened, unused items.

The wrapping party takes place: TBD- More information to come.

Canned Food Drive

From November 1st until mid-December we will collect non-perishable food items in each of our branches to be donated to local shelters in need during the Holiday season. Our food banks will vary based on the needs of the Organizations in the area. We encourage staff to collectively choose a local shelter that could benefit from our staff and member’s contributions. If you know of an organization in need, please reach out to a staff member and they will gladly submit that Organization on your behalf.


Back-to-School Supply Drive

Each year we sponsor a back-to-school supply drive.  Items collected are distributed to various partners in the South Bay.

Community Outreach

We love that we are a part of the South Bay community…and can you believe we’ve been here since 1953?   We’ve seen a lot of kids grow up!

As a local credit union, we believe it’s our responsibility to give back to the community that has been so kind to us.
