First Source Federal Credit Union has proudly supported and contributed to our community since our founding in 1938. It’s part of our nature. We are a community-owned organization and we recognize the importance of investing in that community. While each of the organizations and charities we partner with each year feels the love, the community as a whole may not know all that we contribute through the year.
We wanted to not only raise that awareness but also allow for our community to be a bigger part of the process. In late November we launched an effort through our Facebook page where community members could “Like” us on Facebook and then vote for their favorite local charity to receive $2,500 this January.
The response has been overwhelming. We have grown to over 1,000 fans on Facebook and have received hundreds of votes already. It is so awesome to see everyone’s passion on our page. Each organization is spreading the word and asking their friends, family and coworkers to vote.
As well, we have received positive feedback through phone calls and emails, thanking us for the opportunity to receive much-needed funding. To this we say, Thank you. It is you who drive us to always strive to achieve more and give back to the community.
If you haven’t voted yet, go to facebook.com/fsourcefcu and “Like” us. Then go to our Poll tab and vote. (Wall posts will not be counted.) Votes will be accepted through December 22nd. The organizations listed are groups we have partnered with over the years. Any new organizations added need to be located in Oneida or Herkimer County to be considered, as that is the area that we currently serve.
Remember, only one vote is allowed per person, so make yours count. Of course, encourage others to vote too, and make it a great holiday for all.
