BISMARCK, N.D. (2/12/13)--The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas announced its CU Social Good website has just passed the 500 mark--with 500 stories about the great things that credit unions do each day accumulated and archived in one place for all to see.
The stories are all about credit unions' charitable contributions, volunteer work, fundraising activities, financial literacy efforts and scholarships--among others.
CUAD announced the official launch of the new website last month.
Credit unions give back to their local communities in creative and generous ways, and credit union employees and members are well known for their volunteer work and charitable fundraising events, said CUAD. CUAD encouraged credit unions nationwide to contribute their stories.
Another site credit unions are being encouraged to visit is aSmarterChoice.org, established in 2011 by the Credit Union National Association. aSmarterChoice.org is a website designed for consumers and media to learn more about credit unions and to help consumers find a credit union they are eligible to join. The website provides a comprehensive credit union locater that includes every credit union in the nation, and helps consumers find credit unions to join by answering a few simple questions about where they live, work or worship.
More than 20,200 total visits were made to the site in January. To visit aSmarterChoice.org, use the link.
