LANSING, Mich. (9/19/13)--More than 20 Michigan credit unions have pledged to support the second annual CU Lunch Local, Oct. 15. The event is a cash mob that pumped tens of thousands of dollars into the state's economy through its small businesses, said the Michigan Credit Union League.
During the daylong CU Lunch Local program, credit unions and their employees support local businesses by dining, shopping or buying local (Michigan Monitor Sept. 16). The event increases cash flow at local businesses and offers exposure for credit unions and local businesses.
CU Lunch Local is inspiring credit unions across the country to facilitate local cash mobs. Two new states are finalizing plans to join MCUL in the CU Lunch Local effort, the league said.
Raising awareness about the value credit unions provide their members and communities, fostering service excellence and removing barriers are the foundation for the Credit Union National Association's, state credit union leagues' and credit unions' Unite For Good campaign toward a vision in which Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.
