St. Cloud Federal Credit Union - ST. CLOUD, Minn. (May 2, 2017) - St. Cloud Federal Credit Union is proud to announce the second annual launch of a community recognition program: ChangeMakers: Giving back to those who make a difference. This partnership with St. Cloud Times Media is intended to highlight people who may get little recognition while doing great things in the community.

For 6 weeks, one person will be selected to receive the recognition which includes a news story and $500. This program was created for people who help to improve the local community on their own initiative, demonstrating they put others before themselves while showing service efforts are ongoing.

“Our second year is off to another great start in finding people in our community who don’t even know the difference they make on others. We have the unique opportunity to recognize them and I am proud we sponsor such a meaningful program!” stated Alyce Justin, Chief Operation Officer/Executive Vice President of St. Cloud Federal Credit Union. The credit union is funding the program and was proud to award the first winner, Ray Tuholsky of St. Anna, MN. Mr. Tuholsky has spent years making and donating various items while befriending the many people he comes into contact with.

“The people who work to make changes for the better in our community are sometimes locally famous, but just as often do their work humbly in the background. So, it’s an honor to shine a light on the great people who are doing noteworthy work for their neighbors, without widespread notice. It’s even better knowing they’re getting some financial help for their cause from St. Cloud Federal Credit Union,” stated Lisa Schwarz, News Director for St. Cloud Times Media.
