Humanitarian Highlight 5/2: Philanthropic
It is our favorite time of the week, #HumanitarianHighlight day! The thing we love about this industry, is that many credit unions always take the time to help the community, in an effort to create a better living environment for those in need. We can not stress enough how incredibly grateful we are to all those helping out in any way possible. If you know of a credit union or are part of one that has gone above and beyond in helping, please let us know by tagging #HumanitarianHighlight or simply contact us on any of our social media platforms.
