NCCU donates $1,000 to Carter County Imagination Library
Northeast Community Credit Union is investing in the lives of the children of Carter County with a donation of $1,000 to the Carter County Imagination Library.
Northeast Community Credit Union is one of the Foundation Members of the CCIL and has contributed $1,000 every year since the start of the Carter County Imagination Library. The Carter County Imagination Library provides a free book to children in Carter County every month from birth until they turn five-years-old.
“Our credit union has made a commitment to our community to annually donate a large percentage of proceeds to organizations and worthwhile causes,” NCCU President/CEO Teresa Arnold said. “We are so thankful that we can help provide books to the children in our county.”
The CCIL provides books to 66 percent of the eligible children in Carter County, meaning over 2,000 books are sent out to families each month.
CCIL Chairman Tyler Fleming said the cost to provide children with books from birth until age 5 is $150 per child.
November Helping Teachers Teach
Teresa Arnold, President/CEO of Northeast Community Credit Union presents the Helping Teachers Teach grant check to Mike Dorsey, keyboarding, robotics and dual enrollment at Happy Valley Middle School.
Dorsey applied for the Helping Teachers Teach grant for assistance with the STEM – science, technology, engineering and math - curriculum, particularly in the area of robotics. The grant will help purchase new supplies and cover registration costs for an upcoming robotics competition on Nov. 18.
“This provides an experience for students who are interested in the STEM curriculum,” Dorsey said. “Building and programming a robot will allow students to develop critical thinking skills, which will not only be beneficial in the project but in future occupational endeavors as well. These bright, critical-thinking problem solvers are engaged in all processes from brainstorming a design, building and programming a robot, testing their creation to figure out what works and what doesn’t, and proceeding from there. By introducing robotics to the curriculum, we hope to inspire students to pursue a career in a related field.”
Northeast Community Credit Union awards $300 every month to a classroom to be utilized for classroom needs, classroom activities, and academic enrichment. Helping Teachers Teach is open to teachers within Carter, Johnson, Unicoi, Sullivan and Washington counties that are members of Northeast Community Credit Union. Teachers may download the application at the credit union’s website: www.BeMyCU.org.
NCCU hosts Tennessee State Representative Timothy Hill
Northeast Community Credit Union recently hosted a special meet and greet with State Representative Timothy Hill.
Hill represents the 3rd House District in the Tennessee General Assembly, which includes Johnson County, portions of Carter County, and some areas of Sullivan County - all of which fall in the NCCU service area.
While speaking with those at the meet and greet, Hill shared stories from his youth, including memorable trips with his grandfather to a credit union, where he opened his first account.
"When you bank with a credit union, you are investing back into your community," Hill said.
Hill said he appreciates the work credit unions do in their local communities and hopes to be able to help them with those efforts in Nashville.

NCCU wins $5,000 by Sharing the Love
Northeast Community Credit Union was the October grand prize winner in Share the Love Campaign and won $5,000 to be donated to Assistance Resource Ministries in Elizabethton.
NCCU tallied more than 15,000 votes for the month in the contest. The prize will be donated to ARM which provides monthly food boxes to families, utility and rent assistance, clothing and other personal necessities as well as other needs families have as they arise.
“Assistance Resource Ministry does so much for people,” NCCU CEO and President Kathy Campbell said. “They provide monthly food boxes, and emergency food supplies, clothing and many other forms of assistance to those in need. Think of how much $5,000 will do in the community. It is so great that we were able to work together to make a difference.”
The Share the Love campaign was hosted by Love My Credit Union and allowed credit unions from around the nation to compete to see who could gather the most online votes to aid the charity of their choice.
