Why Credit Unions Are Worth Celebrating
Friendly Federal Credit Union will celebrate International Credit Union Day on October 18, 2018, along with more than 56,000 credit unions around the world.
Since 1948, credit unions have celebrated a simple but radical idea – that by working together, people can improve their financial well-being. “Dreams Thrive Here,” this year’s ICU Day theme, is meant to serve as a reminder of how effective credit unions like Friendly are at helping all people chase and achieve their biggest dreams in life.
This is because the primary purpose of credit unions is—and always has been—to be of service to their members. That means you. This people-first philosophy doesn’t just mean better service, it translates into a better financial deal for consumers. Credit unions, on average, offer higher rates of return on savings accounts, lower rates on loans, and fewer and lower fees than other financial institutions.
Make sure to stop by either our Aliquippa or Baden branch on October 18, 2018 to help us celebrate the credit union difference. Four $50 Gift Cards will be awarded that day. Plus, enjoy free coffee, donuts and snacks in the lobby.
To all of our members, thank you for being a part of Friendly FCU and we look forward to seeing you!
