TUCSON, AZ (June 26, 2023)– OneAZ Credit Union is proud to award a $5,000 Community Impact Grant to Spreading Threads Clothing Bank for their work improving the lives of foster children in its community. Spreading Threads Clothing Bank is one of 66 nonprofit organizations that received one of the OneAZ Community Impact Grant.
“OneAZ is incredibly honored to award this $5,000 Community Impact Grant,” said Brandon Michaels, OneAZ President & CEO. “The organizations that the OneAZ Community Foundation supports are creating meaningful change in the communities where our members live and work. Through initiatives like the Community Impact Grant program, OneAZ is fulfilling our mission to ‘improve the lives of our members, our associates and the communities we serve’.”
“This grant is greatly appreciated,” said Spreading Threads Clothing Bank Co-Founder and Executive Director Michele Wright. “Grants like this one from OneAZ allow us to continue to do the very important work we perform for foster children living in Tucson and Southern Arizona. This will allow us to continue to operate and provide clothing, shoes, books, toys, hygiene products, school supplies, and much more for youth living in foster care. These funds will help us fulfill our important mission of fostering dignity in Southern Arizona’s foster children.”
Since 2016, the OneAZ Community Foundation has provided more than $1 million in grants and funding to Arizona nonprofit organizations through this program and other donations. Funding for the Community Impact Grant program is made possible in large part due to OneAZ members’ debit card usage. This sustainable funding model allows OneAZ to equitably distribute donations to communities where our members live and work.
