This past Tuesday, “Giving Tuesday,” was a big day for Credit Union 1. In fact, I’d say it was one of the BIGGEST days I’ve witnessed here! Each and every employee at CU1 took part in spreading #CU1LUV across Alaska – and the results were phenomenal. We touched hundreds of Alaskans’ lives on Tuesday with goodwill and the One for All spirit. This combo is the essence of #CU1LUV. It’s what makes our credit union an extremely special place to be!
In case you’re not familiar, Giving Tuesday is a national day of “giving back” that caps off the post-Thanksgiving shopping craze of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In honor of this philanthropic holiday, Credit Union 1 hatched a huge plan. In each of our branch communities across the state, we took to the streets! Our employees found families in need of grocery money, folks who needed a smile and a warm coffee, individuals struggling through the holiday season – and we #CU1LUV’ed them.
