Each year we come together to celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) to raise awareness about what it means for members around the world to have a credit union as their financial partner. This year’s global health crisis has been trying for many communities around the world, but credit unions stayed true to their cooperative principles and stepped up during this time of economic uncertainty. Hope is a global resource that everyone has a right to feel and experience. This year’s ICU Day theme, “Inspiring hope for a global community,” reflects how credit unions contribute to a brighter future by providing financial empowerment to people all over the world through financial services, education and support.
This year, we are moving Youth Month to October and celebrating both events simultaneously. Due to COVID-19, our Money Magic celebrations will be held virtually!
Check out our social media pages (or download here) to find fun Money Magic coloring pages! Enter our coloring contest by taking a picture of your artist’s work and either emailing it to us at email@example.com or send it in a message on Facebook Messenger (@NEWelchFCU). During the last week of October, we will post all submitted coloring pages on our Social Media pages. “Like” your favorite page and the artist with the most likes will win $25 deposited into his/her Grape $avers account and a Halloween bucket filled with goodies on October 30th! A second artist will win the same prize and will be chosen randomly from all submitted pages.
