Community Archives

Community: “A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals.” For over 85 years, we’ve viewed ourselves as a true community partner in this wonderful place we all call home. In fact, we refer to ourselves as “your community credit union,” and it’s an idea so important to us that we include it as part of our name.

In this section, we share with you some of our recent participation in and support of community non-profits.

We're United in caring.October 2021
In the month of September, our team and credit union members (that's you!) really came through in support of United Way of Washington County to collect food and hygiene essentials for the community. Not only did we have a great turnout, we also collected an abundance of donations. We even saw some donators decorated their cars for the event. Thanks to all who came to support this amazing cause!
Walk to End AlzheimersSeptember 2021
A huge thank you to all who partipated in the Walk to End Alzheimers on Saturday, September 18, 2021.

Regner Park Beach House Restoration ProjectSeptember 2021
At over 85 years old, the Regner Park Beach House is not only a cherished piece of West Bend’s history, but it also serves many functions for the beach pond, splash pad and ice rink. Glacier Hills is proud to have donated to support the restoration of this historic building in order to keep it in use for our community for years to come!
Bubba Memorial OpenAugust 2021
The Bubba Memorial Open is a golf outing in Kettle Hills Golf Course in Richfield, WI. Money raised goes to "Veteran Honor Flights" and "Support The Troops," a local organization that raises money and sends needed items to troops overseas. Glacier Hills donated a grill pan, grill brush, grill spatula and tongs, BBQ sauce, seasonings, grill lighter, along with 130 plastic bags and pens.
Fiesta LatinaAugust 2021
Casa Guadalupe celebrated their annual Fiesta Latina Saturday, May 22nd, and Glacier Hills was proud and excited to be there to support this wonderful organization. The weather was perfect and the company was even better, as we were able to gather to celebrate the successes and triumphs amid the challenges of the past year.
Full Shelf Food PantryJuly 2021
During the month of April, Glacier Hills employees in our West Bend, Hartford and Fond du Lac branches joined forces to collect food, providing a much-welcomed donation, for the Full Shelf Food Pantry in West Bend. Full Shelf Food Pantry provides food and grocery items to over 500 low income families, delivering over one million pounds of grocery items annually throughout the Washington County area.
Casa GuadalupeJuly 2021
Through education and social services, Casa Guadalupe Education Center empowers low-income, native-born and Spanish-speaking Latino families to live independent, successful lives. This is a non-profit that is near and dear to our hearts. We’ve been involved with them for a number of years, and during this time, we’ve seen Casa Guadalupe make a real difference in our community.
Jackson Area Youth BaseballJune 2021
It’s that time of year again, and we say, “batter up!” Jackson Area Youth Baseball provides an environment for players to develop good citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being. By championing virtues, like character, confidence, effort and attitude, the league promotes development of superior citizens and exceptional athletes. Plus, they have a lot of fun in the process!
The Threshold Inc.June 2021
For nearly 59 years, the Threshold has helped people reach their full potential. The different programs they’ve developed are as varied as the over 670 folks they serve every year. We love this non-profit because they share our strong belief that providing respectful service to each person during every stage of their life dignifies and enriches that person’s life.
Boy and Girls Club of Washington CountyJune 2021
The Boys and Girls Club of Washington County website proclaims, “Great futures start here.” Their mission to enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens is such a noble (and necessary) one. We do believe that it does indeed “take a village,” and this non-profit’s mission is one we’re proud to get behind.
Hartford Parks & Recreation DepartmentJune 2021
We’re big fans of both baseball and the youth baseball programs offered throughout our community. The Summer Baseball/Softball/T-ball Program offered by Hartford Parks & Recreation Department is another one we support. Here, kids learn all the fundamentals—from fielding to hitting and the rules of the game in between. Pass the hotdogs. It’s going to be an entertaining summer!
