Helping our community continue to heal and Grow Stronger Together
When Wellspring Credit Union learned of the loss of frying equipment by the Bridge City Lion’s Club due to the devastation of Harvey, it reached out with a donation of $2,500 to replace some of the lost equipment. The equipment lost in the flood is vital to the Lion’s Club’s biggest fundraiser, that of the Lion’s Club Carnival coming up in the fall. The mission of the Lion’s Club is to provide eye glasses to adults and children in need. Last year approximately $2500 to $3000 was spent by the club to meet these needs in our area according to Winn Leleaux, long time member of the local organization.
Wellspring Credit Union was chartered in 1958 as Orange Firestone Federal Credit Union. In 1999 the credit union received its charter to become a community-based membership. In efforts to send a stronger message of passion in providing members the ultimate financial experience, the name changed to Wellspring Federal Credit Union. Wellspring defined as “an abundant source, describes the personality of the credit union as a unique resource for members in meeting their many financial needs. Branches are in Bridge City, Orange, Mauriceville and Newton.
