For those of our members who are in desperate need we will be accepting applications for Our Giving Fund. This fund was established over 20 years ago to allow us to help our members who are struggling. We raise funds for our Giving Fund throughout the year in a number of different ways; employee jean days, candy bar sales in our branch lobbies, and basket raffles during member appreciation week are just a few of the ways we are able to add money to this fund. Over the years, we have been able to use the money in our Giving Fund to help members who have been impacted by house fires, floods, family loss and other difficult circumstances. If you are a current member of OMEGA and are in desperate need of assistance you can find the application for our employee giving fund here
