HELENS COMMUNITY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION - To commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union employees built nine bicycles and donated them to Columbia County foster children through CASA for Children.Employees of St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union used an all-staff training day on Monday, Jan. 19, which was Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to assemble nine bicycles for foster children in Columbia County.

The bicycles were donated to CASA for Children, a Portland-based group that provides court-appointed special advocates for kids in Columbia County's foster care system.

“It’s great when those in the community come together for our county’s children in need,” said Lindsey King, supervisor for CASA's Columbia County office, in a release from the credit union. “St. Helens Community has always been a huge advocate for our cause and other local charities.”

According to King, Columbia County currently has more children in foster care per capita than any other county in the state.
