PHOENIX -- Desert Schools Credit Union has a long standing commitment to community involvement in Phoenix. In celebration of this commitment, and of their 75th anniversary they are honing in on six organizations as part of their Shine On campaign. 

The Phoenix-based financial institution's new initiative has awarded $7,500 to each of the organizations to kick-start the year as well as their chance to compete for a $30,000 grant through online public voting taking place through October 2014. The Shine On campaign is meant to celebrate our local community and highlight some of the amazing organizations that make a difference here everyday.

The six organizations selected to compete are:

Voting is open to the general public on the Shine On website and people can vote once every day. Each of the organizations has a video on the site, featuring their organization to help the public decide who to vote for.

The year continues as Desert Schools Credit Union celebrates their 75th anniversary with a yearlong sweepstakes for its members and the public. Monthly prizes will be awarded and at the end of the year a grand prize winner will walk away with a 2015 Chevy Camaro. More programs and events will take place throughout the year as well.

Full event details, voting and more information on the Shine On campaign can be found at www.shineonaz.org.
