Express Credit Union

On May 30, a new low-cost and accessible banking option became available to low-income families in King County. One of the first institutions of its kind in the nation, Express Credit Union [ECU] provides standard credit union services as well as specialized products designed to assist people with low incomes to become successfully banked, as well as financial management education and support, thus helping create a path to financial stability. Five years in the making, Express Credit Union is the brainchild of the Medina Foundation and was launched with additional funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle Foundation, Safeco Foundation and Boeing. The Boeing Employees Credit Union (BECU) has also been an invaluable partner and is providing ECU with a variety of support for the first five years. Express has partnered with Hopelink and seven other King County nonprofit agencies, including YWCA, Solid Ground, Neighborhood House, Refugee Women's Alliance, New Futures, Catholic Community Services and Multi Service Center of South King County. These partnerships will allow ECU community member service representatives to outreach to, and serve, ECU customers at 16 locations around King County during regularly scheduled hours; this on-site service throughout the County will improve access to banking services for low income clients who often face transportation challenges. In addition, a network of shared branching and no fee ATM's make these services easily accessible to all in King County. Express's target customers are King County families and individuals who don't have a bank account (estimated at 20 percent of adults in Seattle, according to a Brookings Institution study) as well as those whose current commercial bank isn't a good fit for their financial situation. To qualify as a "low income credit union", which allows ECU to offer the specialized products, a majority of Express customers must have an annual income of $60,000 or less for a family ($28,000 or less for an individual), though customers outside of those income criteria are also welcome to join. ECU services include checking accounts, savings accounts, certificates of deposit, wire transfers and debt consolidation and car loans, as well as short term loans that are re-payable over 90 days. The biggest advantages for low income people are in ECU's fair and affordable terms and the way in which many of its services are administered. Savings and checking accounts can be opened with minimal deposits of $5 and $10 respectively. There are no check-cashing fees for ECU customers. Short term loans have a built-in enforced savings feature: one third of the fee paid on the loan is rebated to the member's savings account once the loan has been repaid. Bounced check fees may be waived if the customer proactively contacts the bank or attends a financial education class. Another big difference is that Express Advantage, a nonprofit affiliated with ECU, will coordinate financial support services for credit union customers, including financial education, credit counseling and case management. Hopelink President & CEO Marilyn Mason-Plunkett serves as President of the board of Express Advantage. She is excited to be involved in this innovative new alternative to payday loan and checkcashing stores for Hopelink clients. "By meeting people where they are, and building on the trust our clients have already established with social service providers, Express is doing something that no other financial institution has ever tried," she said. "If a case worker is helping a family find affordable housing or other support services, it is only natural that he or she would also try to connect them to appropriate and affordable financial service options. This is another important tool to empower people as they work to reach true self-sufficiency. The Express model really is revolutionary."

Traffic at Hopelink food banks has surged by an astonishing 49.5% in just 18 months.

On a cloudy, windy day in May, hope came to Bellevue in the form of thousands of grocery bags. The one-of-a-kind event on May 7 was designed to draw attention to hunger in our community and more importantly, to the role that Hopelink plays in bringing hope and help to those in need. Starting at 7:00 a.m., volunteers went to work spelling out "hope" in Bellevue Downtown Park, using 2,500 bright orange reusable grocery bags. By the time the 20 volunteers finished at 8:30 a.m., the installation covered approximately the area of a football field and drew condominium residents and high-rise office workers to their windows to see what was going on. For several hundred laid-off employees of a local company, seeing "hope" from their office windows brought a measure of calm and peace to their last day of employment. One employee who strolled into the park described the effect as "magical." Anyone who came to the park was invited to take a bag, fill it with groceries and return it to the park that day or to the Hopelink center of their choice, or make a donation online. Even though it was a one-day event, the orange bags are still available at every Hopelink center. Please stop by at your convenience to pick up a bag; see the suggested shopping list further down this page. As always, monetary donations are also welcome online at The eye-catching display drew the attention of KOMO 4, King 5, Q13 Fox News, the Bellevue Reporter paper and the City of Bellevue's television station. As a result, hundreds of supporters went shopping for Hopelink or made a monetary donation, raising 1,200 pounds of food and thousands of dollars in donations, by the time the bags were all picked up from the lawn that evening. Hopelink thanks Labor Ready, KOMO 4, ARC Architects, Wagner Architects and the City of Bellevue for their support with this exciting and successful event.

Shopping List:

This is a list of items needed to fill a bag with Hopelink's core menu - the minimum amount of food a family of four receives at a Hopelink food bank. This food is augmented with fresh vegetables and other items as available, enough to provide a family of four with 15 meals.

The List:

4 cans of soup 2 cans of vegetables 2 cans of fruit 1 jar of juice 2 cans of a tomato product 2 cans of tuna or chicken 1 jar of peanut butter 1 large package of pasta or rice 2 boxes of mac & cheese or a rice meal 2 cans of meals (chili, beans, stew)

We invite you to take this list to your local grocery store, fill a bag with the items above and return it to any one of Hopelink's six emergency service centers. You may instead opt to make a donation equivalent to the retail value of the listed food, which is $43.


President/CEO's Desk Marilyn Mason-Plunkett

I am pleased to announce that early August, Hopelink will launch an innovative service model at a new location in the Totem Lake area of Kirkland. The new Hopelink integrated service center will serve as the new consolidated location for our Kirkland and Northshore service centers. It will also serve as a partial replacement for our Kelsey Creek facilities, housing some of Kelsey Creek Adult Education, Literacy and Lifelong Learning services, while others move to Hopelink's Bellevue Center. The Hopelink Kirkland Northshore integrated services center will feature better access, enhanced services and more flexible food bank hours for clients served through those sites. The 18,700 square foot center will offer a number of Hopelink's existing services in one convenient location, and will pilot Hopelink's first food bank based on a grocery store model of food distribution. This model will provide clients with expanded access to the new food bank, as we will be expanding the hours of its operation. Clients will be able to select items from shelves and refrigerated coolers rather than passing through traditional food bank lines. We are excited to be able to offer this "grocery education, literacy, employment programs, case management support, lifelong learning, emergency financial assistance and energy assistance in addition to the food bank. The new center comes to fruition after nearly two years researching and planning for cost-efficient ways to better serve an increasing client base. Expiring leases at both the current Northshore and Kirkland centers have provided this wonderful opportunity to offer services in a truly integrated location. The new center is located near the Kirkland/Bothell boundary line and is accessible for clients in both communities. We are not eliminating any services for our Bothell clients; rather we will be providing better access to all our services in a one-stop location. The Northshore location has been home to Hopelink's Northshore Service Center for nearly 35 years; during that time the City of Bothell has generously leased the Northshore facility to Hopelink at a cost of only one dollar per year! For that we thank them and recognize the enormous support we've received for so many years. However, the downtown core of Bothell is experiencing a significant redevelopment effort, which includes the demolition of the current Hopelink Northshore site. Recognizing the importance of Hopelink to their community, the City of Bothell is working with Hopelink to establish a continuing presence for outreach there. While some Adult Education staff will move to this new, integrated site, all adult education, literacy and lifelong learning services will continue to be offered in Bellevue through Hopelink's Bellevue Main service center, as well as through the many other community locations we currently use throughout north and east King County. We believe that the consolidation of the Kirkland and Northshore centers into one Kirkland Northshore Center, combined with the geographic ­ but not programmatic ­ shift to Kirkland Northshore and Bellevue for adult education services, will offset the expense of the new facility and create a dynamic model to better serve all our communities.

This center also will allow us to incorporate many Hopelink services at one location. The Kirkland Northshore integrated service center will offer adult education, literacy, employment programs, case management support, lifelong learning, emergency financial assistance and energy assistance in addition to the food bank.

store" model at the new Kirkland Northshore site, as it will allow clients greater choice and opportunity to select foods that are appropriate for their families' needs. It will also provide clients access to services in a way that respects their work, family and life commitments and gives them more flexibility in navigating their many responsibilities. This center also will allow us to incorporate many Hopelink services at one location. The Kirkland Northshore integrated service center will offer adult

Kids Need School Supplies

A tough economy Presents new Challenges as Families get ready for the school year

With the new school year just a few weeks away, thousands of local low-income families and their children have begun to worry about how they're going to afford school supplies ­ or even if they'll be able to get them at all. As every parent knows, school supplies are expensive. As every child knows, it's embarrassing to show up for the first day of school with the "wrong" supplies or, worse yet, no supplies at all. And as most teachers know, it's not always easy to scrape together makeshift supplies for those students whose families just couldn't come up with the money for binders, scissors, markers and rulers. Hopelink's "Kids Need School Supplies" drive erases all that concern for more than 1,700 schoolchildren in north and east King County. Through the community's generosity, children in Hopelink client families will receive a new backpack stuffed with the supplies they'll need to start off the school year on the right foot. To receive a backpack, clients register ahead of time at the Hopelink food bank in their neighborhood (Redmond, Kirkland, Bellevue, Carnation, Shoreline). Distribution takes place in mid-August.

How You Can Help

supplies in particular demand this year include:

three-ring binders (two-inch size) tab dividers for binders Wide-tip and narrow-tip markers erasers Backpacks for older kids scissors for older and younger kids (Fiskars is a reliable brand) Pencil boxes rulers Pencil pouches For more information, go to Hopelink's website for young philanthropists: or to Hopelink's main website, SPONSORED BY:
