Grow Financial Volunteers at YMCA READS!
Reading can change children’s lives. Volunteers from the Grow Financial Foundation visited Sulphur Springs Community School to spend time with students as part of the local YMCA READS! program, coordinated in part by grants manager Ali Hollenbeck.
“This program helps kids read, which is the foundation of all learning and the path to get out of systemic poverty,” Hollenbeck said. “It’s amazing when we have kids who come in not being able to recognize all 26 letters of the alphabet and leave reading on grade level.”
YMCA READS! allows everyday people to help students learn to read and spell words, sentences and stories. The program is designed to help close the gap in students’ reading performance and the State of Florida’s reading performance expectations. But it also opens young eyes and minds to a world full of growth and possibility.
The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA hosts this program for students in kindergarten through third grade at three area elementary schools: Pizzo Elementary, Sulphur Springs Community School and Twin Lakes Elementary.
Grow Financial is proud to support this cause making a difference for children. Community service at Grow Financial is facilitated by employees under the Grow Financial Foundation, furthering the organization’s mission of service by contributing funds and volunteers for local charitable causes. Khenh Vong, Grow Financial Foundation board member, was a part of the YMCA READS! team.
“We want to make an impact on the community and a program like YMCA READS! is doing great things for underprivileged children and families,” Vong said. “The Grow Financial Foundation is thrilled to contribute to an initiative that helps families thrive.”
Interested in serving as a volunteer in your community? By volunteering two hours a week as a YMCA READS! mentor, you can teach a child to read. Visit tampaymca.org/ymca-reads to learn more.
How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
