TLC, a Division of Fibre Federal Credit Union is helping children save money and save homeless animals. For every new member aged 18 or under who signs up for a Cash Club or Student Savings account, TLC donates five dollars to the Humane Society or animal shelter nearest the branch where the account was opened, up to $5,000 total per year.

Since 2017, shelters in Lincoln, Tillamook, Clatsop, Columbia, and Cowlitz Counties have received donations totaling $18,320 in response to new youth savings accounts. Earlier this month, the Lincoln County Animal Shelter received a check for $360, which will be used to purchase dog and cat food. Donations to the remaining shelters will soon follow. TLC plans to continue this developing partnership with animal shelters and encourage community involvement within membership areas.
