International Credit Union Day has been celebrated the third Thursday of in October since 1948. The day is designed to encourage Members and staff to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history and to promote its achievements. The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the great work that credit unions are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more involved.
This year the theme is “Credit Unions Unite for Good”. In this spirit of cooperation, our local credit unions have recently partnered together to help purchase one of five incubators needed by our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. So in lieu of a one day celebration this year, we are spreading the good news and asking our Members to come together to do the same. Signage will be displayed throughout the month encouraging Members to visit http://faxtonstlukes.com/ways-give and make a donation to the cause.
