The Greatest Kept Secret Holiday EVER.
Did you know that October 15th is International Credit Union Day?! Don’t worry – there’s still time to send greeting cards to your close friends and family.
The One for All team is celebrating ICU Day in a big way this year. After all – the credit union motto pretty much nails our One for All spirit right on the head: “People helping people!” A few of the sneaky, fun things we have planned for the Big Day include a guerilla good-will project in downtown Anchorage (this one’s secret…so you’re just going to have to check out 5th avenue that day), delicious pizza lunch for a few Alaskan volunteer orgs (they’ll never see this coming either!), and a pre-ICU Day party at our West High School Cyber Branch on Oct. 14th. Plus, we’ll have special treats and prizes at ALL of our branches.
At West High, our party will even be semi-educational! Julie, CU1's West High Branch Manager, is planning to chat with students about the difference between banks and credit unions. Sound a little dull? NOT REALLY! The difference is huge and exciting!
Fun fact: Did you know that credit unions all over the world are owned and operated by their communities? Every member of our CU is a part-owner - which means everything we do, we do for you. (Yeah…it’s like that Bryan Adams song).
When we celebrate ICU Day, we’re really celebrating the spirit of financially and socially helping our neighbors - not for profit or stockholders’ gain, but for YOU, your family and friends.
Isn’t that a nice feeling?
