The Sparta Boys & Girls Club received $7,000 and the Tomah and West Salem Clubs each received $6,500.

“1st Community Credit Union is dedicated to serving the needs of the people and organizations in the communities we serve,” said Wendy Swanson, 1st CCU’s vice president-finance. “We have a great working relationship with Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago and we are honored to be able to use these funds to help these local clubs continue to provide programs for the youth in Sparta, West Salem and Tomah. We truly believe that strong students make for a strong community.”
