Community Involvement

We take great pride in our deeply rooted community ties in the beautiful Lower Valley region of the Yakima Valley. Founded on principles of reciprocity and a commitment to serving our members, we take our role within our communities seriously by providing the best service we can to those who need us. Our pledge to community often takes us outside our branch locations, where we participate in activities, and get involved in our wonderful communities.
