Grow Team Members Volunteer at Sulphur Springs Community School
On Friday, April 8, several Grow team members took our mission of serving people to heart by spending the afternoon volunteering at the Sulphur Springs Community School. Team members split into two groups, serving in both the food pantry and the community garden.
Sulphur Springs Community Food Pantry
The first group of volunteers served in the Sulphur Springs food pantry. Families from the Sulphur Springs Community School and the local YMCA can sign up for a meal kit and stop by to collect it. Volunteers unpacked boxes of donated goods, including cereal, canned chicken, canned veggies, soup, peanut butter and jelly. Then, they prepared two bags for each family to take home, one that contained breakfast items and one for dinner items. The staff at the food pantry also packed a refrigerator bag with essentials like milk and bread. Ryann Donahue, Content Specialist, shared, “Food insecurity affects so many people in our area. Our local food pantries need support from the community, whether that’s through donations or volunteering. I’m thankful I was able to spend time helping out and that Grow as an organization encourages us to volunteer.”
Sulphur Springs Community Garden
The school’s community learning garden was founded in 2013 as a way to bring fresh produce and a sense of civic collaboration to the Sulphur Springs area, which has been labeled a food desert. It’s now a community landmark that draws in people who may not otherwise have gardened or grown their own produce. Nicole Charles, HR Project Coordinator, said, “Everyone deserves access to fresh, nutritious food regardless of where they live.”
Volunteers spent the day gardening, planting new fruits and vegetables and assisting with general upkeep of the garden. Bernie Manlapig, Consumer Lending Business Analyst, said, “It was great to be out in the community getting my hands dirty and practicing what we preach at Grow! Maintaining a garden like that is a lot of work but knowing what it’s for makes it worth it.” Reflecting on the hard work of the day, Christian Gallardo, Underwriting/Servicing Manager, shared, “This was another testament that life is all about giving and not gaining. My back did hurt a little the next day, but my soul was happy.”

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.)
