Sunset Credit Union offers summer financial safety tips

Summer vacations are a time of relaxation and fun. The last thing you need to take home from your vacation is the nightmare of losing your money, credit/debit/ATM cards, and other forms of identification because any or all of those were lost or stolen.

Here are some tips for holding on to your things:

  1. Take only what is necessary in your wallet or purse. Remove extra cash, credit cards, checkbooks, and identification (especially your Social Security card) beyond what you need for your trip. That will minimize your losses if your wallet or purse is lost or stolen.
  2. Use a credit card and leave your debit card at home. If your debit card disappears, its unauthorized use could result in your checking account being emptied very quickly. With a Sunset Visa or Debit card, you can register it and know when and where it was used.
  3. Keep your wallet or purse in a place on your person where you can easily make sure it is with you at all times. That usually means somewhere on the front of your body—not in a back pocket, which can easily be picked, especially if you are distracted.
  4. Don’t leave extra cash and valuables in your hotel room, or in a rental car. Store them in the hotel safe.
  5. Make photocopies of your credit/debit cards, financial documents, and other related information that you plan to take with you. If your cards or information are lost or stolen, you can refer to these copies when contacting your credit card company and financial institution.
  6. When you return from your vacation, check your accounts online to confirm your transactions are legitimate and were made by you—not someone else.

By taking some simple precautions, you can reduce your chance of being victimized and can enjoy your trip. Sunset Credit Union serves anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Washington County. Visit or call them at 503.643.1335 to learn more.

Noyes Participates in Habitat Home-Builders Blitz

Noyes Development Co., based in Washington County, is building a home for Gabe Triplett, his wife Sylvia, and their two young children, including a son that is wheelchair baound and developmentally impaired. The family currently lives in a small two-bedroom apartment that can’t accommodate their son’s therapy equipment. The doorframes are too small for his wheelchair, so they have to move their son from room-to-room by picking him up: something that will become a lot harder as he gets older. The apartment also has steps with no wheelchair ramp. In addition to the lack of accessibility, there are electrical problems, single pane windows that make it very expensive to heat, and mold growing in many places. The Habitat home being built for the family will be built to ADA standards.

Noyes Development Co and local trades contractors and suppliers are donating labor and materials to get the new home built. The event culminates on Friday, June 10, when the family will receive keys to their new home at the Home Dedication Ceremony.

The Triplett Family

The Triplett family learned about Habitat for Humanity through their church. They were elated when they were selected into the Homeownership Program. Their home will be located at Helensview in the Cully neighborhood of Northeast Portland, allowing them to stay in their current neighborhood. Noyes Development is building the Triplett’s home during the Home Builders Blitz 2016 this spring.

“We are so relieved. We had fear of being pushed out of our neighborhood by gentrification,” said Gabriel, “but most of all we are happy to give our children a safe home that has a greater quality of life.”

The Home Builders Blitz was started in 2002 by Tom Gipson, a professional home builder in Raleigh, N.C., who supported Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to eliminate poverty housing in his community. Gipson rallied other local builders for an accelerated build, which was so successful that Habitat for Humanity International decided to promote it as a nationwide event.

The Home Builders Blitz 2016 is happening simultaneously across the nation, with a goal of building 250 Habitat homes in two weeks, helping families escape substandard housing and become proud Habitat homeowners.

Mike Frey, Vice President of Noyes, says, “Both Peter Noyes and I had been thinking about significant ways to use our skills and resources to make a difference in the community, but we hadn’t ever discussed it with each other. Peter attended a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser in late 2013 where he was introduced to Steve Messinetti from the Portland Metro East Habitat chapter. Steve and his team mentioned the Home Builder Blitz to Peter and came in to make a follow-up presentation to us at our office. Both Peter and I were pleased with the opportunity and though we knew it would be a lot of work, we decided to jump in for the 2014 Blitz Build. After a successful build in 2014, we were certain we would continue the tradition in 2016 with Portland Metro East’s next Blitz Build. It is a great privilege to be able to captain our team of tradespeople and vendors in order to support Habitat for Humanity and to provide a home for a family in need.
