Happy International Credit Union Day
Thursday, October 16, 2014 7:00 AM


In case you missed the signs, it's International Credit Union Day! Cornerstone has been asking credit unions to let us know how they plan to celebrate with their members. Here are just some:

Alcoa Community Federal Credit Union is celebrating with hot dogs, drinks, and prizes. The festivities will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The Benton, Arkansas, credit union will provide a "wheel of fortune" that members get to spin for prizes after answering some questions about the credit union. "The idea of the wheel," said Alcoa's chief financial officer Tandie Kenser, "is to assist the members in answering questions that will enlighten them as to all we do. We feel that will be an effective tool to educate."

If members sign up for e-statements and update their email address, they'll be entered into a drawing for a Yeti cooler or a $350 gift card to Walmart. They will also be drawing winners for a $500 gas card giveaway from their recent auto loan promotion.

Sabine Federal Credit Union in Orange, Texas, sent out a flyer announcing International Credit Union Day and used it as an opportunity to thank their members. With the activities they have planned, they will raise awareness of the many benefits credit unions offer their communities by offering:

  • Free lunches. The Port Arthur Evening Sertoma Club will be onsite to serve hot links, chips, and drinks.
  • Free treats. The Ice Cream Man will be onsite to serve ice cream.
  • Free gifts. Each member will receive a complimentary gift in honor of International Credit Union Day. 
  • Shred Old Documents. Each member will be allowed to bring two boxes or bags of documents to be shredded at no charge. 
  • Give the Gift of Life. The LifeShare bus will be onsite for a community blood drive.

The staff of evolve Federal Credit Union will be visiting their seven El Paso branch locations with hundreds of stadium cups stuffed with sweet treats in commemoration of International Credit Union Day. Those who participate can snap a selfie with their stuffed cup and post it to the credit union's Facebook page for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card.

Evolve FCU would like to honor those who work hard to make the credit union industry a success as well as offer its members a token of our appreciation.
