WASHINGTON (12/23/13)--One credit union's efforts to heighten the holiday season for overseas servicemembers and Unite for Good are highlighted in this week's edition of The Cheney Report
Staff members at Arrowhead CU, San Bernardino, Calif., recruited members, families, friends and first graders at nearby East Heritage Elementary School to help make hundreds of holiday cards to send to on-duty Air Force service men and women stationed abroad. More than 300 cards were specially made and sent to the Air Force for those deployed in Afghanistan, sharing the credit union and holiday spirit of people helping people, Cheney noted.
CUNA is collecting these stories to showcase how credit unions are joining forces to Unite for Good, and similar stories will be featured each week in The Cheney Report
. Cheney continues to encourage credit unions to visit UniteforGood.org
and share how they are helping reach CUNA's shared, strategic vision in which Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.
