CU opens Staten Island branch postponed by Sandy
BROOKLYN, N.Y. (1/15/13)--While all branch openings are a measure of a credit union's growth, Polish & Slavic FCU's Dec. 15 grand opening of its first branch on Staten Island had a special significance: The opening had been delayed by Hurricane Sandy.

After Sandy struck Oct. 29, not only did the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based credit union have to repair the damaged branch, scheduled to open Nov. 5, it also assisted its new neighbors in recovering from the storm (PRNewswire Jan. 14). The credit union collected clothing and other items for hurricane victims. Items were donated through local parishes and community organizations.

Also, the credit union's mobile branch also moved throughout the area where branches were inoperable to assist members.

PSFCU has 16 branches throughout the metropolitan New York City area and Chicago.
