Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA- Members of Gesa Credit Union have given $100,000 to Junior Achievement and Habitat for Humanity.

Credit union president Christina Lethlean presented the check today in front of a home currently being built by the women volunteers of Habitat for Humanity.

Lethlean says the credit union chose to partner with Habitat for Humanity and Junior Achievement because their missions align with Gesa's mission.

"These two organizations also want to help people be financially literate,help them to manage their money, in other words help them prosper and be responsible homeowners and give back to the community."

Lethlean says Gesa will contribute $100,000 to the community every year from now on.

Habitat for Humanity says workers should have this house ready for its owner by Christmas.
