Mercer County Community FCU Donates $5,000 to Junior Achievement

Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union recently donated $5,000 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.

Mercer County Community FCU also received the Community Collaborative Award in recognition of the partnership with JA. 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. “We’re proud to know that we’re making a positive impact on so many young people’s lives through JA,” stated Sandi Carangi, CEO of Mercer County Community FCU.

MCCFCU Holds Annual Shred Day to Serve the Community

Mercer County Community FCU held its annual Shred Day on Saturday, October 21. Members of the Credit Union board, supervisory committee, staff and volunteers were on hand to assist members as they brought sensitive materials to be shred. This event was held alongside #CUKindDay, a nationwide event dedicated to spreading kindness and giving back to the communities where credit unions serve.

Construction Underway for Mercer County Community FCU New Hermitage Office

Construction is underway for Mercer County Community Federal Credit Union’s new Hermitage office. Located on property where its former office was located, the new two-story, 10,000 square foot facility will feature wider, easier access full-service drive-thru lanes, an expanded lobby area and a fresh, modern atmosphere. Additional loan and member service offices and state-of-the-art technology will support financial services for the credit union’s nearly 12,000 members.

On October 6, 2023, members of the board of directors, supervisory committee, and staff had the honor of signing a 16-foot long steel beam. It was later erected above the main entrance of the building and will be visible while the building is under construction. As work progresses it will be concealed by the exterior walls but will remain a permanent monument within the structure of the building.

“Our credit union has a strong history in the Mercer County area. The construction of this new office represents our continued commitment to serving the community and meeting the financial needs of our members,” said Sandi Carangi, CEO.

Mercer County Community FCU is partnering with PWCampbell, a design-build firm specializing in financial institutions for over 100 years. The project is expected to be completed in early 2024. While the new office is under construction, members of the credit union are being served at a temporary Hermitage office located in the Kohl’s shopping plaza and the Sharon branch on Sharpsville Avenue.
