Sharonview Federal Credit Union, one of the nation’s top 200 credit unions, presented $1,000 to Mt. Zion Baptist Church Food Bank, $1,000 to the City of Simpsonville Victim Advocate (Closet of Goods), and $1,000 to the Center for Community Services at the ribbon cutting at its Simpsonville Branch on Wednesday, March 27.

"Sharonview Cares, our charitable giving arm, is committed to providing support to local nonprofits whose mission is focused on financial literacy education, eradicating homelessness, and alleviating hunger in the communities we serve," said Rondel Hartwell, vice president of marketing at Sharonview Federal Credit Union. "We are honored to support local community partners whose missions align with our corporate charitable giving pillars."

The checks were presented to recipients during a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate Sharonview’s newest location in Simpsonville’s Martin Farms Shopping Center at 710 Fairview Road. Sharonview leaders and team members, current members and community representatives were in attendance, along with members of the Simpsonville Chamber of Commerce.

The new Simpsonville location features a barn-style design to pay homage to the land’s roots as the Martin Family Farm. The site has grown and developed over the years from what was once vast farmland, with this branch being one of the latest additions.

“The Sharonview team is excited to have the opportunity to bring our services to the outstanding community of Simpsonville,” said Craig Valdes, branch manager of the Simpsonville location. “We aim to help our members improve their financial standing while embracing the history of the Martin Family Farm through this new location.”
