SDCCU was awarded an Addy at the 2016 SDX American Advertising Awards, held Friday, March 4 at Kona Kai Resort & Spa on Shelter Island. SDCCU was recognized with a Bronze Addy Award in the Community Award category for its SDCCU Stuff the Bus campaign.
SDCCU Stuff the Bus was launched in partnership with Channel 933 and the San Diego County Office of Education during the 2015 “back to school” season to collect school supplies for local students. SDCCU wrapped a school bus, creating a mobile SDCCU Stuff the Bus billboard, which went on tour with Channel 933, making various stops to collect nearly 3,500 school supplies.
“SDCCU is honored to receive a 2016 Addy Award for SDCCU Stuff the Bus. This award is especially significant because it not only recognizes the creativity of SDCCU’s dynamic marketing team but also SDCCU’s commitment to youth, education and the community,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.

The American Advertising Awards program is hosted by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), a national advertising trade organization comprising a membership of more than 200 local advertising clubs, including SDX.
