Frontwave Credit Union Announces Acts of Kindness Campaign in Celebration of 70ᵗʰ Anniversary

June 14, 2022

Oceanside, CA — Frontwave Celebrates Communities with a Series of Giveback Events.

In celebration of its 70th anniversary, Frontwave Credit Union is hosting a series of experiential activities and events that showcase acts of kindness throughout their Southern California communities. Through this campaign, Frontwave gives back to the communities they serve by providing surprise events and thoughtful activations, including paying for active duty military members' gas, buying groceries for patrons at the grocery store, and donating supplies to local schools. 

"In addition to providing great financial services, Frontwave is very proud to be a positive force in our communities," says Bill Birnie, President and CEO of Frontwave Credit Union. "We take the credit union philosophy of ‘people helping people’ to heart, so there’s no better way to celebrate our 70th anniversary than by giving back to the communities who have helped make us great. Through these events, donations and simple acts of kindness, we hope to further encourage our members and communities to dream big, knowing Frontwave’s got their back."

The acts of kindness activations will be held June through October across Southern California. Participation from all 14 Frontwave Credit Union branches will help produce these events including: 
  • Free Taco Truck for health care workers at a local hospital 
  • Pay for rescue dog adoption fees at Oceanside Humane Society 
  • Host a meet and greet breakfast for select participants at Super Girl Surf Pro 
  • Donate school supplies and sponsor a school field trip 
  • And more events that initiate kindness
