The Roscommon Branch of North Central Area Credit Union (NCACU) chose The Char Goddard Memorial Scholarship Fund as its 2018 annual charity recipient. The scholarship was created through the Foundation by friends and family of Char Goddard. Her love and compassion for the Roscommon area was well known by so many. The staff at NCACU chose Goddard’s Fund this year as a she was the twin sister of Dar Stead-Smith, the Roscommon Branch Manager.
The annual charity is selected by the branch staff, as they pick different organizations that can benefit each year from their Casual for a Cause fund. The Casual for a Cause is a program, where each employee pays each Friday to wear a logo shirt and jeans and the Credit Union matches these funds. They also sell candy bars in the lobby to members throughout the year and have internal contests to raise more funds for their charity. This year the donation was $2,454.69.
