International Credit Union in 2020
By: Emily Jones
October 13th, 2020
2020 has been a year unlike any other for most of us. It’s been a year where steady industries have
stopped altogether, where millions have lost jobs and/or wages and where people have lost loved ones to
a disease that has made the whole world stop and take notice. In 2020, we’ve had to change the way we
serve you. Our members have made more trips through the drive-thru, made many additional calls to the
call center, and accessed digital banking services more than ever before. The constant for us throughout
this year has been you, our members, and this is why we are taking the time to give back. International
Credit Union Day is our way to celebrate our reason for being, our members.
We will be celebrating with another group volunteer activity and this time our staff will be at
Community Harvest for SeniorPak day on Wednesday, 10/14. We will be passing out food to the seniors in
the Fort Wayne area. This will be our 4th large group volunteer activity of 2020, in addition
to the employees who volunteer individually on behalf of the Credit Union.
We have also decided to treat our members in-office or in the drive-thru to a sweet candy treat on
Thursday, 10/15 at all of our branches. Please stop by and let us Thank You for being a member.
We, as a not-for-profit financial institution, believe in the power of giving back. In addition to
volunteerism in our communities and our commitment to giving back the proceeds from our Affinity Cards to schools and non-profits, this year,
our efforts have included COVID-19 Assistance Programs such
as Personal Relief Loans, Refinance Options, and No Fee Relief Skip-A-Payments. Credit unions also
return profits to their members by providing lower fee services and more loan opportunities than big
bank competitors. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you and are grateful for the continued
opportunity to serve you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and let us know if there is something
we can do to make your 2020 better. We are here for you and will get through this year together.
