Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union was recently honored to receive the Marketing Innovation Communication (MIC) Award for Best Annual Report. This award was presented by CrossState Credit Union Association, the trade organization that serves over 500 credit unions across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The awards for outstanding achievements in marketing and communications were presented at the Annual CrossState Evoke Marketing Conference held July 20, 2022.
The Credit Union’s 2020 Annual Report, with the theme of “Together We Serve You,” was produced last year, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The front cover featured individual photos of the Credit Union’s staff, board members and supervisory committee. This imagery exemplified the fact that the credit union continued to be present – even if virtually – to support members during the most unprecedented time.
Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union recently donated $2,500 to Junior Achievement (JA) of Western PA in support of JA’s mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed. With the help of this donation, JA programming can continue to provide valuable lessons to hundreds of students in Mercer County area schools that promote financial capability, work and career readiness, and business ownership.
In collaboration with JA, credit union staff members serve as volunteers to teach financial literacy lessons in local schools, attend career fairs, and take part in JA BIZTown – a fully interactive simulated town where students learn about the business world and everyday life. “It’s great to know we’re making a positive difference in so many young people’s lives through JA,” stated Sandi Carangi, CEO of Mercer County Community FCU.
